Care For Your Broken Heart
The life of Joseph gives us a template for navigating suffering and thinking from the perspective of God. Suffering can lead to bitterness, but Hebrews 12 says, “See to it that no one misses the grace of God. And that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.” Big Ideas: God doesn’t admonish Joseph or others for crying. For expressing the weight of their suffering. What we learn from Joseph: 1. Leave all the righting of wrongs to God 2. See God’s hand in man’s wickedness. 3. Repay evil with practical affection. Kindness. 4. Forgive as God forgave you.

Care For Your Body
It's easy to ignore proper care for our bodies, but it's also easy to turn our bodies into idols. Let's unpack some Biblical principles to help us honor God with our bodies. 1. Your body isn’t worthy of your worship, but it’s worthy of your care. “View your body as an instrument, not an ornament” (Gary Thomas). 2. View exercise and eating as spiritual. I Cor 6 says, “The body is meant for the Lord.” I Cor. 10:31 says, “Whether you eat or drink, do it all for the glory of God.” 3. Make a plan – any common sense plan. 4. Measure (Note Daniel). 5. Be courageous. 6. Be gentle & gracious. A dietitian's guide to guilt-free, holiday eating - by Sloan Taylor
