IF YOU ARE OVERWEIGHT and out of shape, I am not taking any kind of physical training advice from you. You may know a lot, but it’s clear that you are not applying your own knowledge. If you’re a gym rat like me, you know the physical trainer’s job is to have an in-depth knowledge of the human body, exercise equipment and how the two go hand in hand. Usually you will hear them ask this phrase, “What are your exercise goals?” A good trainer is so physically fit, you’re almost intimidated to seek help from them; but that’s their job. They’ve trained themselves and now they want to train you. Some want money, but most I’ve met just love training people and helping others to feel good about themselves.
Hello? McFly? Are you mopping up what I’m spilling? “For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8 If you read this whole chapter, Timothy has been trained by other’s, and he’s continued to train himself from the knowledge he’s learned- he’s fit. Now, he’s in a position to train, “Continue to command and teach these things”. What things? Training in godliness.
It begs the question: are you allowing yourself to be trained by someone who’s spiritually fit? Then, WHEN you are well trained, you should be showing others how to use the equipment. #runyourrace
