Christian Women and Weight

American society says that women should be thin and skinny.  The media always slams women for gaining weight.  This is even true of pregnant women and it’s plain wrong.  This is kind of ironic since America is the fattest nation and is only becoming fatter.  Still, thin is in and there’s no getting around it.

What does God have to say about this?  He says that our bodies are a temple and that we need to respect and take care of our bodies.  However, this doesn’t mean that we need to become obsessed with our weight.  It’s important to take care of our bodies and our health, but it’s not fine to take it too far.  We must remember that these are only our human bodies.  Once we’re done with these words, we’ll have our eternal bodies which we’ll have forever.

We need to focus our lives on growing closer to God and following his will, not what our bodies look like our how much we weigh.  Women also need to keep in mind that there are all kinds of guys out there.  There are guys who like thin women, some like curvy women, and there are guys who like women with a little meat on their bones.  Always remember that God loves you whether you’re thin, chubby, overweight or fat.
