Care for Yourself

Morning Thought: When a pregnant woman feeds herself she cares for the baby within her. In the same way, when you care for yourself, you care for what the Father has planted within you. Zealous Christians can often make the mistake of not spiritually caring for themselves. Since Scripture says, “honour one another above yourself,” it’s easy to think that God doesn’t want you to look after yourself. But if you don’t nourish yourself, you jeapodize the life within you. Look after yourself with a purpose: to glorify God and bless those around you with new life. And the best way to do that is spending time in God’s refreshing presence. “They made me caretaker of the vineyards, but I have not taken care of my own vineyard”‭‭(SOS ‭1:6‬b, ‭NASB‬‬).

I was born and raised in New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and became a pastor. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring a beautiful church in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com) and we lead an awesome Bible School (www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
