Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body.
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (NIV)
There once was a writer from Michigan
Whose mirror revealed the shape she was in.
M&M's in a bowl
And with no self-control
She emptied it faster than any man.
The writer then realized her sin.
The temple the Spirit lived in
Had gone all to pot
And healthy was not
Good-by M&M's, hello thin.
Now the writer was bought at a price.
For honor she'll overcome this vice.
She'll pray ev'ry day
M&M's stay away
And chocolate will no longer entice.
