Knowing God's true purpose for me.
Paul tells us:"What know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's"
I Corinthians 6:19-20
Jordan's Tip of the Day from the author of The Maker's Diet
Three Ways to the Temple
When we respect our bodies, inside and out, we make greater strides toward knowing God's true purpose for us. We take time to celebrate our own temple by getting some excercise, making time for prayer, and eating healthy food.

Why did such a major change take place in David's life and attitude?
First, because David hurt enough to admit his need. When you are hurting, you need to declare it to someone, and especially to the Lord. David hurt enough to admit his need.
Second, he was honest enough to ask for help. We have lived under such a veneer for so long in our generation that we hardly know how to ask for help. But God honors such vulnerability. He did then, and He does now.
And third, he was humble enough to learn from God. How tragic it is that we can live in one cave after another and not learn what God wants to teach us. Not David! I love the man's utter humility. If it is to be a cave, then let's not fight it. We'll turn it into a training ground for the future!
Psalm 142, 57, 34

It's been said many times before - sow what you want to reap, do unto others as you would have them do to you -
But it remains eternally true.
We humans are set up in such a way that giving joy to others actually adds dabs of joy - color to our own hearts.
