Body and Soul

    Which do you consider stronger, your body or your soul?  To which do you invest more time and thought into?  These are important questions to ask yourself when you think about eternity.  The weaker my body gets, the more I feel like a soul-being.  It means I look beyond my physical strength and look more for my inner strength.  'Physical strength is measured by what we can carry.  Inner strength is measured by what we can bear.'
    Soul strengthening comes best from God's word.  It is truthful, encouraging, reassuring and never changes.  The soul is also nourished when we help others.  It is a command to put others above ourselves.
    How much better would we feel if we spent equal time on both the body and soul?   ''What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?'' Mark 8:36
    May all that you encounter today with your body, be well with your soul.
