1 Timothy 4:8
“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”
Spring has finally arrived and we all know what comes after Spring….SUMMER baeeebeee! That means warmer temperatures, plenty of sunshine, and getting in shape/showing off the body. We’ve put in the work or in the process of putting in the work to like what we see on the outside physically. But we can’t forget to put in the work to beautify and like what is on the inside, which is our godliness… our spirit.
We as humans are enamored by what the eye sees. We are in AWE of the physical… the flesh… the smile… the curves… the giggle/bounce. We pay to get personal trainers. We pay for gym memberships. We pay for the attire to work out in. And we invest all this in a vessel that will hold up for only so long, giving us benefits that will last just this life. But the godliness/our spirit only cost us time, energy, commitment, the right mindset, and the right relationship with The Father and Son. And the cost of our investment in our godliness will benefit us in dealing with each other, dealing with this world, and dealing with our life and the life to come.
Our godliness has a significant impact on our physical being. Our godliness can help us live longer when coupled with physical training. We can be both, physically fit and spiritually fit, but we must invest accordingly and appropriately. But only one has promising benefits in the life to come.
Food For Thought: Funny that the same qualities (time, energy, commitment, the right mindset) needed for physical training is the same for training/strengthening our godliness/our faith/our spirit. We invest in and work on what we feel is most important to us!
