She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
Proverbs 31:17
We’re expected to exercise for the strength – spiritual, mental, physical – to tackle God-given tasks. In no area are we productive when we’re lazy. But society often gets it backward – obsessed with the physical, while ignoring the soul. God puts a premium on the latter.
“Charm is deceptive, beauty is fleeting,” we’ve heard. Or, as Mom says, “Beauty is only skin-deep.”
The Bible says a woman who fears (meaning “is in awe of”) the Lord is beautiful and shall be strong and firm. I sometimes get caught up in an obsession with exercise, especially running and isometrics in a hot, hot Bikram room. I’ve justified time spent doing it by acknowledging it lets me think, and formulate productive plans, and pray. This is all good and true.
But when I feel anxious, impatient, and totally on edge if I’m unable to run, it’s not good. It means I’ve taken it too far.
I so often say, “Sweat is my sanity!” But could that mean I’m letting workouts take the place that should be filled by God?
We need balance between body, mind, and soul – and of those three, the soul is by far the most important. No other thing, even a good thing like exercise, should come before our relationship with God. God is found in prayer, not in neon lace-ups and stretchy pants.
Sweet Freedom in Action
Today, pledge to spend at least as much time in prayer as you do at the gym.
