Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For 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. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe. 1 Timothy 4:7-10 (NIV)
As believers we need to train ourselves to be godly and continue to put our hope in the living God so there will be promise in this life and the next. in order to be godly we will need to have Spiritual discipline which will require navigating our lives in such a way that we can do the right thing, at the right time, at the right moment, for the right reason!
Heavenly Father, God Almighty,
thank you for helping me to understand your word, and for pointing out this particular scripture to me. I ask that you continue to fill me with the Holy Spirit, give me your wisdom and guidance that I need to train myself to live spiritual and godly lives I we can have promise in this life and the next. These words I pray, in Jesus’ name, amen
