Numbers 25:1-26:51; Proverbs 22:17-23:11; Luke 1:26-56

For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things. 1 Timothy 4:8, NKJV
Exercise thyself rather unto godliness. 1 Timothy 4:7b

Although exercising our bodies is beneficial for our physical health, God’s Word says it pales in comparison to the benefit godliness produces in our spiritual lives. The neglect of exercise in either the physical or spiritual realm, can cause atrophy to set in due to lack of use. This may result in complacency, ineffectiveness, and lack of growth. May God keep us disciplined to exercise unto godliness every day. —E. V.

Only this hour is mine Lord, may it be used for Thee;
May every passing moment, count for eternity. —Avis B. Christiansen
