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)
It's good to exercise to be prepared for anything that God calls us to do, but we must be careful. While there are many biblical and health reasons for exercising, always watch out for vanity because if we're not careful exercising can become a huge idol in the life of a believer. Are there benefits to exercising and should we as believers make it a priority? Yes, but should that be a believers main focus? Of course not because godliness and spiritual training is more important than physical training!
Today I will mediate on who God says I am. I will not be conformed to this world, but rather I will choose to renew my mind with the Word of God, and be transformed! When I do this I will be able to discern God’s perfect will for my life, my health, and my body. (Romans 12:2)
My prayer is that God uses these short devotionals to encourage and challenge you.
