Seeking Him Podcast

A Little Profit

“All right, this is the year, Baby, I’m gonna start running every day. Yeah, I think I’ll even train for a marathon. I’m going to start by jogging over to the refrigerator, I guess.”

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: The apostle Paul wrote to his younger friend, Timothy, and said, “Bodily exercise profits little.” My dad used to remind us that exercise wasn’t the most important thing in life, but at least it did profit a little.

Walking and other forms of physical exercise are profitable for health reasons. But I’ve found another reason. The disciplines in our lives—the way we eat, drink, and exercise—these lay a foundation for other disciplines in our lives.

I’ve found that being consistent in the little things, like exercise, helps me be more consistent in more important disciplines—things like being morally pure.

At the start of a new year, what habits can you form that will lay a foundation for a disciplined life?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
