Exercising at the Spiritual Gym
It seems just about everyone has a physical fitness routine they try to follow daily. From gym memberships to hiking, biking or running, most folks I know are doing something daily to keep their bodies healthy and in shape. Heck, even I finally traded in sport eating for a real fitness program involving healthy food choices and exercise. Thanks Tim Berry, Miss Kim, Miss Jenna, and Dillon!
The point is that physical fitness involving healthy food choices and exercise is now a part of our culture. Being physically healthy is something we need to own but what about our spiritual health? How are we building up our spiritual fitness? The good news is that just like our physical fitness routines, we can keep spiritually fit too.
Daily time spent in the Word, prayer, as well as frequent contact with other believers can and does build up our spiritual fitness. What does your daily spiritual fitness routine include? Check your experience…
“Assuming we are spiritually fit, we can do all sorts of things” Big Book pg 100
Lord, let us grow spiritually healthy through daily time spent in Your Word and in prayer, AMEN.
“Exercise daily in God—no spiritual flabbiness, please! Workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever. You can count on this. Take it to heart.” 1Timothy 4:8-9
Have a blessed day y’all!
