Is it easy or hard for you to say “I love my body” and mean it?

That is what Marsha at A Weight Lifted asks.

And I ask: Is it wrong or even unspiritual to love our bodies?

If we look at loving our bodies as Marsha puts it, by "being moved to nurture our bodies", then I think there is no conflict there. I think most agree that taking good care of our homes, cars, children, intellect, finances, spirit and soul, community, etc, are godly things. Some call it good stewardship. Should it be any different with our bodies?

Make sure you read the rest of her post. And let me know what you think.

  1. Thanks for talking about this on your blog, Renata. I think it is such an important topic. As I said in my post, it's at the core of taking care of ourselves. And if we love our bodies, it makes it so much easier to take care of them.
