Your body is a temple

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies’” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I’m Chuck Proudfit, the founder of At Work on Purpose, writing this first blog installment of Temple Truths on behalf of Tom Krueger. As I type out these words, Tom is undergoing a hip replacement surgery. For a man as vigorous and physical as Tom, this has been a trying season of physical limitations.

Yet through it all, Tom has kept his upbeat attitude and sense of humor. Better than anyone else in my life, Tom has shown me first-hand that physical health is just one part of our total health. Even when we are physically challenged, we can move forward with emotional stability and spiritual vitality.

I’ve commissioned Tom to bring Temple Truths to life because he has a lifetime of wisdom to share in this space. With practicality and humility, Tom’s blog will unpack the depths of scripture like 1 Corinthians 6:19-20. Look forward to Tom’s inaugural blog just a month from now – by which time I expect that he’ll be up and walking (if not up and running!) following his hip replacement.
