I eat ice cream for breakfast. “You do WHAT?” people ask. I like oatmeal. Instead of pouring on milk and sugar I dollop on a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Now you know my weakness. But I know my body needs vegetables, fruit and protein to maintain good health.
And so it is with everything in our lives. We know what we need to be physically well and spiritually whole. We need to nourish ourselves spiritually with love and concern. How do our thoughts and actions affect us and those we touch?
Our bodies are “parts and members’’of Christ. We are messengers and deliverers of His love. His Holy Spirit is within us. It is essential that we remember this at all times. We need to keep that spirit nourished and healthy and ready to do His will. --Alice Yeakel
