Feeling Guilty for Not Taking Care of “Temple”

January 29, 2012

“I have struggled with being overweight my whole life. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to get a grip on my eating. I am a Christian, and I’ve often heard it said that our bodies are supposed to be a “temple” of God. I feel guilty that I can’t seem to take better care of this so-called temple, and I wonder if it means I don’t really love God, cause if I really did, wouldn’t I be able to be better at following his commandments?”
