27 Sep 3 John 1:2

2 Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.

Many times, when sickness arrives in our lives it is unpreventable. The effort we put into our spiritual life and wanting it to grow is the same effort we should put into our physical health. Making sure our temple (our body) does not get neglected is vital. Here in this verse, John is talking about how valuable good health is, especially as we increase in age. Physical health is something we can control and in many cases help prevent sickness. Do not allow a sickness to creep up because of bad habits, such as overeating or lack of exercise. God has equipped us with a body that is a rental, we must take care of it until we get our perfect heavenly bodies.
