Jeremiah 33:1-34:22 / 1 Timothy 4:1-16 / Psalm 89:1-13 / Proverbs 25:23-24
1 Timothy 4:8“For bodily exercise profits but a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having the promise of life that now is and of that which is to come.”Our world gives a great deal of value to physical exercise. Gym memberships, home exercise equipment and work out plans are big businesses that continually compete for consumer dollars. We’ve become a culture that believes if a person is physically fit, they are doing well overall. The problem is, we can have a “six-pack”, ripped muscles and be at the top of our cardio game, and still have lives that are falling apart.
Physical health is important, but our spiritual health FAR OUTWEIGHS IT BY A LONG SHOT!
God says, “Seek FIRST My Kingdom (your relationship with Me/My ways) and all these things will be added to you.” Matt 6:33
When we place our relationship with God as the TOP PRIORITY in our lives, He will redirect all the other priorities of life, including physical. He promises to direct our path, give us His awesome strategies for how He wants us to “do life”, and open our eyes to His LIFE-GIVING TRUTH. This allows us to be healthy, strong and profitable in EVERY WAY!
