My Bible verse and teaching this week that helps me at work comes from Paul who wrote to Timothy. We are taught here that “physical exercise has some value, but godliness is valuable in every way. It holds promise for the present life and for the life to come.”
so many people try to find life satisfaction in so many ways….. Exercise, mental training, meditation, positive thinking, the list goes on and on.
The Bible teaches that many of these suggestions are dangerous and to be avoided and some are of some value .. Such as exercise, but that none can bring contentment, happiness, positivity, power, a feeling of well being, a peace that we can enjoy but not understand etc etc.
what CAN bring all see benefits to us I have found, even through the toughest times is godliness. But I can’t be godly- no chance. Thankfully I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour and through His spirit and with His strength I can walk in Godliness. Daily dying to self, asking forgiveness for my shortcomings , finding forgiveness and pressing on. Now I must say that in a busy work life where everyone chases everything else, once again the Bible gets it right. Godliness that comes through a personal walk with Jesus is valuable in EVERY way. So stop for a moment and consider how a life as someone born again, walking in a godly way might actually feel!
have a good week
