Physical Exercise Profits Little

​”For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come.”


~ 1 Timothy 4:8 AMPC
I think this verse was added for those times when my desire to do a workout is clashing with my quiet time with God. Here I am thinking about how it would be great to do another workout this morning (I did one last night), but then that would mean cutting short the time I’d planned to spend with God this morning. So this particular verse pops into my mind & I’m like, “Aah, yes, physical training profits me little, but godliness /spiritual training does much much more.” And so the quiet time continues as scheduled… 🙂
