Worshiping Bodily

What if we started living in right relation to our bodies now, instead of waiting for the resurrection? What if every time we looked in the mirror and were tempted to complain we said, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven," laying claim to the future hope that our bodies will one day celebrate function in right relation to form, living in the glorious truth of that future hope now?

... Choose compliments that spur her to pursue that which lasts instead of that which certainly does not...

Sister in Christ, physical perfection is not within our grasp, but, astonishingly, holiness is.
