“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8
Running has become quite popular these days. I guess people are realizing more and more how important exercise is to maintain good health. Running is not my favorite way to work out, but I am beginning to see that it is a great form of exercise. Recently, my husband, two of his brothers, my two brothers, my sister-in-law and my father-in-law all ran in a race in Arkansas. To humor myself and to let my son participate, my sister-in-law and I did the one mile fun run, as I pushed one of our sons in our jogging stroller.
As I watched some serious runners cross the finish line after running a half-marathon, I was impressed. I mean, that takes a lot of self-discipline and training. Many of the things that we do in life require discipline and devotion. While it is not a bad thing to spend our time on these things, I wonder how much time we spend disciplining ourselves when it comes to managing our emotions?
