TRAINING IN GODLINESS


Our daughter-in-law has participated at times in triathlon competitions. The triathlon is an endurance event in which you swim a certain distance, ride your bike a certain distance, and finally, and without resting, run a certain distance. It is a very demanding test of your abilities.


And I can tell you: Our daughter-in-law didn’t just decide one day to get up off the sofa and tackle the triathlon. She prepared herself for it. She practiced. She spent months getting ready. She trained her body for the grueling ordeal of the triathlon.


Everyone understands this. If you want to build your body’s strength and endurance, you prepare. Why do we not see that the same is required in the realm of the spiritual? In 1 Timothy 4:8, the Apostle Paul says, "Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come."
