1Timothy 4:8, “For bodily exercise profits a little, …”
When you work so hard in the day, you feel tired and worn out. Any activity you add to it is expected to make you even more tired. The body which is suppose to be the temple of God ought to be looked after. This goes with what you do with it and what you put in it. We ought to do everything to maintain it, not only will we be doing what is right before God, it will also be to our benefit. How often do you see people abuse their bodies? They drink their heads off, inject drugs into their body system and not care for their body at all. How many know smoking is bad for their health but still do it? There are Christians who can’t quit smoking, some struggle and some don’t want to. If you thought that God only cares about your spiritual being, think again. God cares about our spirit, soul and body, emphasis in that order. Though the body is not the number one, He formed it and gave everything needed to care for it. They say cleanliness (healthy) is next to Godliness.
