A thought from the scriptures

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. - Rom. 12:1

"When I was young, the health benefits of the Word of Wisdom, including abstinence from tobacco, alcoholic drinks, tea and coffee, were not as well established as they are today," then-Elder James E. Faust of the Quorum of the Twelve said during the April 1992 general conference. Continuing, Elder Faust, now second counselor in the First Presidency, explained: "However, the spiritual benefits have long been validated. The Word of Wisdom promises that those who remember to keep this counsel and walk in obedience to the commandments shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones.' (D&C 89:18.) The promises for those who keep the Word of Wisdom continue. Those who observe this lawshall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures."
