"For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come." 1Timothy 4:8
IN JESUS TODAY!
We hear it all the time, "Eat right, exercise, and sleep well." Instructions unto us to exercise and how important it is to our health and well-being, but we see here that while bodily exercise is important, it is of little importance compared to salvation, love, and living a righteous life! Sure exercise helps the body and helps to fight against such things as depression, anxiety, and many afflictions that some experience, but exercise cannot get anyone into heaven, nor is it profitable at all towards the life to come. So what should we say to this? If boldily exercise is of little importance, yet so many people participate because they consider these benefits, how much more should we practice that which is Godly? God's law and his righteousness is much more profitable for us and for our eternal life. Bodily exercise is good for our body’s health, but Godliness, the fruit of the spirit, goodness unto others, and our daily drawing near to Jesus has far greater benefits.
This should be the exercise that we participate in. As it is written,
"Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Psalm 32:4
What matters most in life is found in the afterlife with Jesus, our exercise while on earth ought to be exercise in righteousness and love, and the spiritual building up of our heart and mind!
DAILY EXERCISE WITH JESUS PROFITS MUCH!
