Your body has physical urges such as hunger, thirst, pain, lusts of various types and so forth, but your soul is where the real you, resides. What you think is what you are.
And what you think, should be what is in control of you, not your physical urges. Your mind should run your body, your body should not run your mind.
Therefore, do not yield, paristemi, which means to stand beside, to give preference, to aid, or to assist. Therefore, do not give in to the demands of your body, but rather give in or submit yourself, to the demands and the expectations of the spiritual life.
Likewise, bring your body along with you.
You have heard the phrase, did you have your head with you when you did that?
And of course it’s merely a funny quip, but the phrase has a lot of good common sense with it. In other words, think before you act. Or, act in accordance with how you think.
And needless to say, what you should be thinking is Bible doctrine.
