“Have you had your conversion? Your life is a gift; your body is God’s temple. Make your life and body an honorable, excellent offering to God”. (Mike Slaughter, Momentum For Life, p. 122).
Mike Slaughter talks about his ‘conversion’ to a healthy and fit lifestyle. It came about through a sudden attack of heart arrhythmia. Unfortunately, as much as we listen to, know, and understand about health and fitness… many of us are like Mike, it takes a ‘crash and burn’ experience a ‘near death experience’ to really wake us up.
There is a wise saying: “Smart people learn from their own mistakes… but WISE people learn from the mistakes of others”. Right this very minute, many of us have the opportunity to avoid a ‘crash and burn’ health experience. We can take up a positive lifestyle of regular exercise and healthy eating. THAT’S the kind of conversion I want! A wise one in which I don’t have to learn the hard way.
What about you? Have you had your conversion?
