There are wonderful stories in the bible that teach us how important it is for you to care for and take care of your body.
“In the beginning, GOD created heaven and earth and on the third day, God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.
In those seven days the story teaches you that GOD created everything to sustain the creation of man and woman. God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
Then something very profound happened. “No shrub had yet appeared on the earth a and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.
“God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. Then a river watering the garden flowed from Eden.” This was to sustain the garden and give man/woman water to drink and nourish the body.
There are many ways to interpret these words from the bible, however, the truth is “planted” in the lines “there was no one to work the ground”, meaning that GOD created man/woman not only to have dominion over all HE had created, but GOD has also created man/woman to tend HIS garden. There were no lawnmowers or weed whackers or hedge clippers in the garden. Man/Woman had to move, bend and reach to maintain the garden. In other words, GOD also created “exercise”!
Then finally on the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
Every lesson required to have life, healthy, healed, and whole can be found in scripture.
Eat food from GOD, Drink WATER the elixir of GOD, tend HIS garden Exercise, and on Rest!
