For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.1 Timothy 4:8 (NIV)
Though I believe the above verse is absolutely true, our spiritual fitness (or godliness) is of utmost importance, the verse does state that “physical training is of some value.” I believe its value is pretty significant and can compliment and aide us in our fitness in other areas.
The discipline required to physically train for something, whether it be an athletic event, maybe a half-marathon, or even arbitrary fitness goals that you have made for yourself, will certainly carry-over into other areas of your life. In fact, I find that if I lack discipline in my physical fitness I am often being lazy in my spiritual fitness. When I lack physical discipline I am often going backwards financially too because I am not being productive in my job and I am likely eating too much bad food which can be more costly in the long run.
This section of my blog will focus on ways I am pursuing physical fitness through exercise and proper nutrition. It may contain a shameless plug for Advocare for which I am a distributor. It certainly will contain links to other resources and tools I have found helpful. It will be a place to review and invite feedback regarding some of the latest fitness trends. Last but not least, it will be a place to document my training for an upcoming half-marathon.
