[Episode 15] What's your body Type? Introduction to somatotyping and the ectomorph body type
There's something in us that craves to be understood...to be known for what makes us different and unique. It's why we flock to personality and, more recently, DNA testing. We delight in knowing that God created us with a specific design.
Unfortunately, in every culture a "desirable" set of traits rises to the surface. In America, over the years there has become a certain set of traits, skin color-personality-IQ-body type, that has somehow been placed up on the pedestal of peak desirability (as a woman). And if we don’t have those particular traits, we feel we are less deserving or less valuable.
But this thinking (that a certain set of traits is more valuable than others) is a product of sin and sinful thinking. And the truth is that we all bear God’s own image in our own unique ways.
As we explore the uniqueness of our own individual body types, it's important to understand that God had a purpose and a plan for creating you the exact way that you are. And He never intended for you to try and change it, but rather to maximize it and use it for His glory.
