DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Aerobics:
a series of strenuous exercises which help convert fats, sugars, and starches
into aches, pains, and cramps.

1 Tim 4:8-9
8 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.
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
KJV

Now, most folk who know me will tell you I exercise a lot.
I do believe exercise, in the appropriate manner and time, is beneficial.
It strengthens muscles, increases agility, and aids mobility.

However, exercise and health foods to the extreme cause body dysfunction.

And, even appropriate exercising and eating healthy will not, I repeat WILL NOT
increase your lifespan one second!!

God has a great respect for arithmetical coefficients.
In fact, He wrote a book called “Numbers!”

Multiplying exercise and/or calculating calories may help for the MOMENT.
But they will not add one second to the lifespan.

That's because God has our days NUMBERED!
Jesus said Himself, that we cannot add one little bit to our “stature.” (Matt. 6:27)
The Greek word from which “stature” is translated can mean a measurement of distance or time.

Wisdom, acquired from God's Word, is much like exercise and proper dieting.
While it may not add distance to your lifespan, it certainly makes life more enjoyable!

Prov 3:1-2
1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
KJV

Learn more about Jesus and be more given to Him.

John 10:10
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
KJV

Yes! EXERCISE!
Exercise your body.

But, more importantly, exercise your spirit!

For THAT is what gives you joy in this life, AND
the joy of KNOWING you have eternal life in Jesus!

Here are 5 basic exercises for your spirit:
PRAYER,
BIBLE STUDY,
WORSHIP,
CHURCH ATTENDANCE,
and WITNESSING TO OTHERS.

Love ya!
