Take Care of Your Whole Self

A jogging woman

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God— this is your true and proper worship.—Romans 12:1 (NIV)

Be a good steward of your whole self and recognize that taking care of yourself physically is an important aspect of your faith. Getting enough sleep, eating well and exercising all play a part in living your best life. Aligning with God’s will involves your body, mind and spirit.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, let my life demonstrate how much You really mean to me.

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts
