I HAVE HEARD. I HAVE MADE, ALL THE EXCUSES. I AM TOO BIG, I AM TO WEAK, MY BREATHING TOO SHORT, I CANNOT AFFORD A GYM.
PERSONALLY, WITH MY LEG INJURY AND BEFORE IT, I COULD NOT GET UP AND DOWN FROM THE FLOOR. I HAVE A WALL. I CAN MODIFY EXERCISES IN A CHAIR. I CAN MODIFY ALL EXERCISES. I CAN, I CAN, i CAN! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ... Philippians 4:13 …BEFORE WORKING OUT PRAY FOR GUIDANCE AND WISDOM IN YOUR EFFORT. START OUT SLOWLY WITHIN YOUR LIMITS.
While some think work is an evil to be avoided if at all possible, God has ordained it because it is good (Ephesians 4:28). The man that works is to be held in honor and esteem by his fellows (I Thessalonians 4:12); whereas, the idle man is worse than an unbeliever (I Timothy 5:8; cf. John 3:18; II Peter 2:20).
God has ruled that the man who will not work should not eat (II Thessalonians 3:10). Such a man is not worthy of the fellowship of the saved (3:11–12). The sluggard is condemned in the Scripture (Proverbs 10:26) and consigned a place with those whom the Lord hates (Ezekiel 16:49). God does not condone idleness knowing it breeds wickedness (Proverbs 18:9; 21:25; II Thessalonians 3:11; I Timothy 5:13; Ephesians 4:28); whereas, industry promotes thrift, self-reliance, charity and a worthy character.
WE MAKE OUR MISTAKE BY EATING MORE THAN WE NEED TO DO THE WORK OUR BODY NEEDS. WE COMPOUND THE MISTAKE BY BEING TO FULL TO MOVE. WE MAKE OUR MISTAKE BY EATING THE WRONG THINGS, IN THE WRONG AMOUNTS AT THE WRONG TIME.
WE ARE TOO LAZY OR TOO TIRED,HOWEVER ITS TOO EASY NOT TO BECOME AWARE AND EDUCATED ABOUT DIET, LIFESTYLE, FOOD PREP.
WE NEED TO EAT, BUT WE NEED NOT TO STORE IT IN FAT FOR A COLD WINTER.
LIKE THE ANT THAT WORKS TO GATHER THE FOOD, WE SHOULD WORK TO EAT. WE SHOULD WORK TO LIVE.
WE SHOULD NOT LIVE TO EAT.
