The thing that has been penetrating my heart about Proverbs 31:30 is that "beauty is fleeting." I know God wants us to be healthy. 1 Cor 6:19-20 talks about using every part of your body to honor Him as we are bought with a price and we are not our own. But what is our motive when exercising and eating healthy? Is it really for the Lord or is it till fill our own pride? Wrong motive is at the root of insecurity.
How can I be so committed to working out everyday and sometimes even at crazy morning hours, yet fail to spend time feeding my soul with His good Word and wisdom? Spiritual health is the most important aspect of our being. So as I continue to build my outward strength, I will look more inward at where my help comes from (Psalm 121:2).
