"For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come."
- 1 Timothy 4:8
 
When Friday comes many are likely thinking about hitting the bike trail, heading for the beach, or teeing off in the morning mist.

But Paul said that "godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come."

The trouble is that many Christians today emphasize physical exercise. Paul also said, "Exercise yourself toward godliness" Regular spiritual exercise such as prayer, Bible study, walking in the Spirit, sharing Christ with others, serving others, and living a pure and holy life are profitable for both time and eternity.
 
Christian friends, Looking forward to the weekend is fine. And there's nothing wrong with biking, swimming, golfing, or other forms of recreation. But remember, the greatest profit comes from exercising "toward godliness."

Should be the Christian's goal;
But it is more important still
To exercise the soul.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - To keep spiritually fit, feed on God's Word and exercise your faith.
