The Sh’ma, Week 3- “You are a Nephesh”
The Sh’ma commands us to love God with all our heart, soul, and might. This week, Pastor Brad focuses on the word “soul.” We often think of our souls as being the spiritual part of us, as opposed to our physical being. However, that’s not how the Hebrew people thought of the soul. They saw the physical and non-physical as inseparably related. The Bible is clear that our bodies are more than just a container for our souls. They are an essential part of who we are. Only when we see our bodies as an important part of who we are can we live our lives aligned by God’s love as he intended.
