People spend millions on cosmetic surgery, health spas, natural vitamin regiments and cosmetics to counteract the aging process.  Colorists are making a fortune because of the demand for blonde hair in women of mature age.  Men are getting on the bandwagon and coloring their hair to attract younger women.  Aging takes its toll and will eventually overtake even the most physically fit and beautiful people.  We all die.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with trying to look our best and exercising.  However, we must have a relationship with Jesus Christ in order to have a beautiful heart as well.  It tells us in the Bible in 1 Timothy 4:7-8: “exercise yourself toward godliness.  For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.”

One day those of us who have accepted Christ as our Savior will have perfect bodies.  Our citizenship is in heaven and the Lord will transform our lowly body to conform to His glorious body (Phil. 3:20-21).  How awesome is that!
