When we are well in our spirit, we are holy. When we are well in our soul, we are happy. And when we are well in our body, we are healthy. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. God wants us to keep our bodies holy, happy and healthy, as we strive to honor Him in every part of our lives, and overcoming the sin of gluttony helps us do that.
