" For bodily excercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things having promises of life that now is, and of that which is to come." I Timothy 4:8
When the weather gets warm and less clothes we put on suddenly we begin to pay attention to all the muscles we have been neglecting. I'm definitely guilty of this but as I broke out the Tae-bo DVD and worked up a sweat this morning I could hear a gentle urging of the Holy Spirit, "Bodily exercise profiteth little."
This is not to say that the body is not important but the Spirit within you must not be neglected. While you're running, crunching, sweating be sure to get your spiritual workout on like Paul, "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men." Acts 24:16

On this Wednesday be wise and exercise mercy towards those who have offended you.
On this Wednesday be wise and exercise patience towards your children and the elderly.
On this Wednesday be wise and exercise your arms and your lips by lifting them up to worship the Lord thy God and you're conscience will be void of offence toward God and men.
