Temple of God

1 Corinthians 3:16-17, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
Sometimes we feel like we can do whatever we want as long as it only affects ourselves. Yet these verses teach us that we are the temple of God and that we are to take care of ourselves. This is true in regards to both mental, physical, and spiritually. We cannot do things that defile or destroy ourselves. We must take care of ourselves in regard to what we eat, to exercise, to unhealthy things that we might like to eat, to situations that affect us mentally, to sins which destroy our soul. We are the temple of God. Let us not forget that!
