ABC Scripture Challenge - Value

Happy Friday to all of you! I know I've been a little bit quiet lately but I've still been busy with my big project. It will be posted on Sunday, so I hope you all come back and take a look at it! :o)
I'm happy to have a Scripture Challenge page for you today! Today's word is "value" which is defined as "relative worth, merit or importance." There were several different directions to go with this word but I really liked this verse in 1 Timothy 4:8. It says: "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." Now, I don't know about you but I got quite excited to read the part where it says "...physical training is of some value BUT..." Does this mean I don't really have to get on the treadmill today? lol No, we can't stop reading there...we have to keep going and read the WHOLE verse. What it says is that there is value in excercise but there is much greater value in the pursuit of godliness. They both benefit us in this life, but only godliness will benefit us in the life to come. Again, I will remind myself that I still need to get on the treadmill! However, I need to do it with a book, music or tv show that will also promote the pursuit of godliness. I do appreciate it when the Lord leads me to an action verse! It reminds me of what I need to be doing every day! So I'm off to put the finishing touches on my big project, and then get on the treadmill with some worship music! I wish you all JOY as you pursue godliness in your own lives! :o)
