Why do I care about toxins?! “Rebekah, all you do is go on and on about how everything kills us! We’re going to die anyway.” Haha! True. BUT, what quality of life do you want until then? What ailments do you plan or want to have before your life is over? Asthma? Rheumatoid arthritis? Neuropathy? Cancer?
What if you could live a full life without a trip to a doctor on a weekly basis because you were proactive when you were younger and made a better life for you and especially your children? That is why I care about toxins, where they come from and how I can minimize our exposure to them!
If quality of life isn’t enough of a factor for you, what about your temple? 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, “19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
This is a filter I use all of the time. If it wasn’t ‘clean’ or good enough for the temple of the old testament, why should my body, the new testament temple, be any different? A couple questions you may ask are, “Is this something I want to defile God’s holy place with? Will this glorify God in my body?” It really can be a game and health changer when you regard your body as ‘not your own’.
