Every Body Matters: Strengthening Your Body to Strengthen Your Soul

Every Body Matters By: Gary Thomas

We’ve all said it at some point. And since it’s the new year I am betting most of us have said it in the last 2 months more than once, ‘I need to lose weight.’ As one of the most common New Years resolutions every year, the need to lose weight, or get fit it high on everybody’s list, and if you’ve been in the gym recently you can see people starting towards that goal, but over the next few weeks and months those goals will get lost in the crowd until next year when we put it at the top of our list once again in an attempt to conquer our bodies.

Every Body Matters: Strengthening Your Body to Strengthen Your Soul is going to tackle this problem head on, Gary Thomas has pointed out and reminded us that to lose weight for superficial reasons is not where our goal should be, and although for our health is a good reason it should not be the reason. Our bodies should be used to glorify God, and when our bodies are out of shape and are unable to manage to do the work God has called us to do, than there is a problem. Our bodies are instruments for God to use for His purpose, we must prepare to do any good work. Thomas points out he is not saying don’t exercise or don’t try to lose weight, but don’t do it for the wrong reasons, our mindset needs to be focused on Our Creator and to complete His works.

This book is not about weight loss, not about getting healthy physically, it is about how to strengthen your soul, how to strengthen your mind and in turn strengthen your body so that you are prepared for when God calls you, you can complete the tasks He has for you to your fullest ability.

This book was provided to me complimentary from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
