ancient as the Bible! What these old-timers shared has been in our Owner’s Manual (the Bible) all along.
   For friends of Jesus, this should not be a surprise. Over and over we’ve seen how much Jesus loves us. Like any best friend, He
wants the best for us. That’s why God tells us in the Bible how we can live happier, healthier lives. By following God’s counsel we can get the most out of our friendship with Jesus.
1. True or False: According to 3 John 2, Jesus wants us to be in good health.
   Good health comes not by accident, but by recognizing that our body is a special place where God lives through His Holy Spirit. We learned about this in Lesson 7.
2. Look up 1 Corinthians 3:16, 17. How does Paul describe our bodies?
 a nervous wreck
 the jewel of God's creation
 the temple of God
   In 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20 Paul adds that our body temple does not belong to us. Jesus bought it by dying on the cross for us.
   Everything about you—your health, your body, your mind, your feelings—is so important to Jesus
