Heard Around the House: Temple of God Edition

January 17, 2012

At dinner tonight it was mentioned that there is going to be a new iCarly episode with Michelle Obama.  We were discussing Mrs. Obama and the work she’s doing to improve the health/diets of kids in the country.

Nick:  She’s ruining everything.

Me:  How is she ruining everything?

Nick:  She’s taking away my constitutional rights to put salt on my fries and eat sugary cookies.

Me:  I have something better than the constitution.  (I pull out my “Made to Crave” book).

Nick:  That is better than the constitution?

Me:  No, but the Bible is.  (I look up a section in the book)  In 1 Corinthians it says “Everything is permissible – but not everything is beneficial.”  Sure you can have that salt and cookies but is it beneficial to your body?

Nick:  Isn’t our body supposed to be the temple of God?

Me:  Yes.

Nick:  Well in ancient times the better the God, the bigger the temple.  Shouldn’t we be trying for bigger bodies?

Oh my gosh…why do I bother?

    This house is not watching that episode and it hasn’t got anything to do with healthy eating!

      Hmm…I have no idea what the episode is about. We just got off on a tangent about the healthy eating. :)
