Underline the correct answer
Did you know that we have more than six hundred muscles in our body?
Because we have muscles, we can move, hold our heads up, lift weight, walk, comb our hair, swim, run, jump . . .
We wouldn’t be able to do anything without them, not even smile.
There are muscles we move voluntarily—that means that we decide when to use them—but there are also other muscles that without us controlling their movements, such as the heart.
Muscles also help us regulate our body temperature, because when we use them, they produce heat and even make us sweat.
Muscles are made up of thousands of entwined fibers. They never tire out and they keep on working even when we’re sleeping.
Some of the muscles in our body are called trapezius, calf, biceps, gluteus . . . but there’s one with a very long name: sternocleidomastoid.
That’s long, isn’t it? Well, thanks to the sternocleidomastoid muscle we can bend and turn our head.
So every time you say ”yes» or «no” and nod or shake your head, you use the muscle with the very long name: sternocleidomastoid.
For your muscles to stay healthy, you need to play a sport or do some other kind of physical exercise, so your muscles will stretch and contract and stay in shape.
Do you know who had such strong” muscles that he defeated a lion with his bare hands? God gave Samson a lot of strength so he could carry out a great mission.
Samson didn’t obey God and that made him unhappy.
He did many amazing things, but at the end of his life he asked God to forgive him for not having used his strength to do what he was supposed to have done with it.
You can read about him in the Bible, in the book of judges 14-16.
Thank Jesus today for your muscles in your Prayer Journal.
