At Issue - Weight

Verse: 1 Samuel 4:18

Sure, we hate that our society tells us the “ideal” woman is 5’9’’ and weighs 110 pounds. We aren’t all meant to look like supermodels! Plus, we know that God loves us just the way we are. Of course that’s true … but hold on a second. Eli’s life illustrates the fact that how we treat our bodies has serious consequences. So instead of thinking skinny—let’s think healthy. Doesn’t God want us to care for the bodies he gave us? Ask yourself what a healthy lifestyle looks like for you.
