What Surviving Betrayal Taught Me About Self-Care Part 2
Today we're going to examine how self-care relates to "His body." Last week we looked to the example of Jesus to try and learn what true, Biblical self-care looks like. We discovered that Jesus did, in fact, practice self-care during His time here on earth. Though, it didn't really look much like the picture the world tries to paint for us. Jesus made spending time alone with His Father a priority. He went through grueling spiritual preparations before entering into battle with Satan. He was in tune with the Holy Spirit, and willing to change His plans if God led Him a different way. Each of these things required intention, and Jesus was committed to taking care of Himself in order to be fully equipped for the job to which His Father had called Him. Are we called to anything less? (If you have a few minutes, and you didn't have a chance to read last week's post, do it now. It lays a solid foundation for what we’re going to discuss today.) Now let's look a little more closely at one surprising area in which the Bible calls us to be intentional in our self-care efforts.
