“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Do you not know

that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit,

who is in you,

whom you have received from God?

.

You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.

.

– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

What is the Spirit telling so many of us right in the middle of summer?

.

Honour God with your bodies,

dress appropriately,

respect yourselves,

respect the Lord, your God

and never forget that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit.

.

Wanting to look good and fashionable is understandable,

but dressing immodestly is something else.

It can lead others to sin

– to lust, and perhaps even beyond.

.

We also mustn’t forget

that even though others may not fall into the sin we make attractive to them,

we will nevertheless still be guilty of promoting the evil.

Remember what Jesus tells us:

“There will always be temptations to sin,

but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!” (Lk 17:1)
