From Jim’s Heart—Profitable for All Things

We live in a health-conscious society. Diet plans and exercise regiments abound, and we’re reminded again and again of the benefits of eating right and good physical training.

Even the Bible acknowledges this, saying that bodily exercise “profits” us (1 Timothy 4:8). Yet notice what it says next: “But godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.” So while physical training has some value, spiritual training has a lot more. In fact, it’s “profitable for all things.” That includes your marriage, your children, your job, your ministry, and even your life in eternity!

How are you doing in your growth toward godliness—that is, becoming more like God as much as is humanly possible?

Lord, help me assess my spiritual training regimen and make adjustments where necessary. Thank You for the promise that my growth in godliness is not only possible but also profitable! Amen.

A Great Day–Or Is It?

You can plan, schedule, and control—but real life doesn’t always go as smoothly as you’d like, does it? Someone’s upset with you, the car breaks down, you’re in a meeting and the school calls because your child is sick, you get the news your mother has fallen and hurt herself—it’s an endless list.

Galatians 5:22-23 says, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” As a believer in Christ, you have longsuffering, or patience, as a fruit of the Spirit. Let this verse be a great comfort and reminder when you’re dealing with personal relationships, trying to keep a household together, and managing your workday, along with all the other responsibilities you have. Colossians 3:12 says to “clothe yourselves with… patience.” It’s spiritual fashion at its best!

Jesus, I want to wear my faith well. Grant me patience as I parent my children, encourage my spouse, do my work, and offer a listening ear and open heart to others. Amen.
