What the Bible says about Shazzy Health train
We all know that the Bible is the book we can turn to for sanity, but do you know that the Bible also has a lot to say about your physical health? There are many Bible verses that talk about moving and caring for your body.
Here are three that will inspire you to go jogging early in the morning after reading the Bible.
Run for victory
24th Don't you know that all runners run in a race, but only one gets the prize? Run so that you get the price. 25th Everyone who participates in the games trains strictly. They do it to get a crown that doesn't last, but we do it to get a crown that lasts forever. 26 So I'm not running like someone aimlessly running; I don't fight like a boxer who blows the air. 27 No, I punch my body and make it my slave so that I won't be disqualified for the price after preaching to others.
1 Corinthians 9: 24-27
The apostle Paul used running, boxing and discipline as an illustration for a reason. Serving the Lord has eternal rewards in the same way that exercise has benefits.
Yes, sticking to a good practice routine requires a lot of discipline, but all the sweat pays off. The right weight, a healthier body, a better mood and even better sleep are just some of the benefits of regular exercise.
Exercising the body is wise
A wise man is full of strength, and a man with knowledge strengthens his power.
Proverbs 24: 5
The Book of Proverbs contains many practical tips for everyday life. Of course, this book of wisdom will not miss out on taking good care of your body. Exercising isn't just for selfies – starting a healthy routine can only be one of the smartest decisions you can make.
Honor God with your body
19th Don't you know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you that you received from God? You are not your own; 20th They were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
We all want our homes to be clean and immaculate whenever an important guest visits them. But we often forget that our bodies are temples for the Holy Spirit. Neglecting the physical state of our body is not a good way to invite God to his temple. If you keep your body in top shape, it shows God that we take good care of what he bought at a price.
Obviously, God not only wants us to be fit mentally, but also physically. Reading the Bible, prayer and other spiritual disciplines are important, but also good training. You may even be surprised to discover that exercise can complement your mental health. A brisk walk or a light jog can be the perfect complement to quiet moments with God.
