Higher Everyday (23/11/2023): Gain Of Godliness

Higher Everyday
Gain Of Godliness
Key Verse
“For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come” (1 Timothy 4:8).

Text — 1 Timothy 4:7-12
A lot of people take to different kinds of games, whether indoor or outdoor, to exercise the body. Some pay regular visits to gyms while others never miss daily jogging. It is true that exercising the body through games and sports contributes to health but is of little value, because the gain is for a short time and for this world alone. Godliness is profitable for life here and in the hereafter. God will not bless the ungodly. Charles Blair said, “You can’t trample on the rights and feelings of others, charge high prices for shoddy merchandise and at the same time expect God to bless your business.”

The godly man is afraid of nothing but God, because he knows Him as his Father, and will not hurt him while he lives righteously. Moreover God is his shield and buckler against satanic forces. Godly youths have peace with God, they are in partnership with God and make progress through Him. The ungodly will be barred from His goodness and banished from His presence in eternity. Godliness secures God’s blessings now and in eternity.

Godliness secures God’s blessings
