God’s Temple

I am an only child. My parents are deaf. When I was younger, we went to church and I learned about God.
But later I fell away from God. I started drinking a lot. I was living with my aunt, but she did not want me to drink. So I left her house, and I was homeless for a while. Then I decided to go back to my aunt’s house.
It was nighttime, and I was walking along a highway to my aunt’s house. Suddenly a car came up behind me and hit me. I flew over the car and landed on the road. The car did not stop. I was in the hospital for a day, but then I went home.
This accident made me realize that God was trying to get my attention. I starting thinking about my life and that I was not taking care of my body. So I prayed and asked God to help me take better care of my body.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul tells us that God’s Spirit lives in us. We need to take care of our bodies so that the Holy Spirit has a good place to live. Be sure to keep your body pure for God.
