Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? —1 Corinthians 3:16
In giving us the gift of a body, God has allowed us to take a vital step toward becoming more like Him. Satan understands this. He chafes at the fact that his premortal apostasy permanently disqualifies him from this privilege, leaving him in a constant state of jealousy and resentment. Thus man, if not most, of the temptations he puts in our path causes us to abuse our bodies or the bodies of others. Because Satan is miserable without a body, he wants us to be miserable because of ours. Your body is your personal temple, created to house your eternal spirit. —Russell M. Nelson
