Do you like your body? I know, what a terrible thing to ask someone, but I think it’s a question that leads to some important considerations. I kind of imagine that everyone has issues with their own bodies, with a very select few exceptions in the world. Scripture tells us that when God created humans, God said that it was “very good.” I think we often relate this mostly to one’s “personhood”, and that’s certainly a major aspect of what God created. But our bodies were part of that creation (in fact…it seems to be the central aspect of what God was creating at the moment).
We’ll dive into these things on Sunday morning. Read this week’s passages to prepare.
