Some say the body is a temple. Yet like the body, not all temples are the same. Some are carved out of abandoned shopping centers, while others are magnificent structures designed to glorify the Deity it represents.
All temples began the same way. A dream and a vision, the clearing of ground, and then the work to build the structure. Once completed, it became a place of worship and spirituality.
It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.Socrates
At forty-seven years of age, I still look in the mirror and imagine what my body can become. I can’t control my height, facial structure, or any of the odd features I was born with. Instead, I can only try to control the things within my power. I can make what I can control beautiful and strong. My temple holds my heart and my spirit. Therefore, I work to make it a worthy structure fit for a child of God. While on the earth, this body is the only I have, and I treat it with the reverence it deserves.
How is your temple coming along? It would be a shame to grow old and never be able to see the beauty and strength it is capable of achieving.
