“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” – 1 Timothy 4:8 (NLT)
Godliness can get a bad name sometimes. We can often think that being godly means that we don’t get to have any more fun. We imagine our nights full of reading the Bible and saying no to every fun thing our friends ask us to do.
God doesn’t ask us to hate life. In this verse, He just tells us that godliness is better. Living for God brings benefits in your life now and in your life to come.
God wants to bring good things into your life. He wants you blessed, successful and promoted at everything you do. So today, if you’re on the fence about living for God, be encouraged. God has good things for you. He’s not trying to keep you from fun but rather wants to bring you benefits and blessings that you’ve never imagined.
Stay close to God, follow after Him and you’ll experience blessings in this life and the one to come!
