Why These Mortal Bodies?
As I get older my aches and pains increase (I sound like a popcorn popper when I sit down) I wonder what this mortal body is supposed to be teaching me. We’re told from a very young age that we’re privileged to have bodies, because 1/3 of premortal heaven did not get this opportunity. Gaining a body is one of the reasons we are sent to mortality, in preparation for eternity.
Still, it leaves me wondering what 70 years (give or take) in this failing, imperfect, crotchety body will teach my spirit. After this life will my spirit will be twisted and bent from spending so long in this mortal sphere in a less than celestial body?
- How does this telestial world teach us how to live in the celestial world?
- What have you learned from your body?
