Body and Soul

And now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Deuteronomy 10:12

Below is a great quote from C.S. Lewis, but I'm not sure many in the world believe this truth.  Our soul will live on after our body dies.  We spend lots of time taking care of our bodies.  What is more important is that we spend time taking care of our souls.  

Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
1 Peter 2:11-12

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?  For the Son of Man is going to comein his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.
Matthew 16:25-27
