Just as an astronaut needs a spacesuit to live in space, so God has given us an "earth-suit" to live on earth. These suits are important and we need them. Our bodies are not evil; they were created by God and are good. So we should take care of them as best we can. But just as with astronauts, we are more than the suit. We are more than our bodies. We are souls and we must take care of the person within this earth suit. If we ignore the needs of our "outer man" it begins to fall apart. The same is true for our inner man. We must also nourish, exercise and care for our souls. As we continue to unpack that truth from 1 Timothy 4, we notice how Paul puts great emphasis on studying the Bible to know God as the first and most important discipline for growing in godliness and caring for our souls.
1 Timothy 4:7-8
