I've invented a new word. You'll understand in a couple of minutes. I've just listened to a half-hour religious program, all spent on the need to exercise. But the only place in the Bible that I saw the word "exercise," used on the physical body, was in the New Testament, in 1st Timothy 4:8, where it says, "Bodily exercise profiteth little."
I'm here to suggest that you not wear yourself out. There's some good in bodily exercise, but that's not your physical problem. As a personal thing, I take a few minutes to work my arms, legs, head twisting and such, to make sure arthritis isn't sneaking in. And although I loved to run in high school and college, still I walk, not jog, around the block when I think of it.
And I've noticed that most of the ones who jog, don’t know how to run. They make a job of it, stomping, instead of light-weight moving, going easy on the heels. Folks, knee operations and many other health problems is a word called "weight." I remember a minister who, after inviting anyone in the congregation, to come forward to be prayed for, that he looked at the line of people, and most their problems was that "W" word. Weight.
I have a Thorntonism: "Don't NEED it? Don’t EAT it." Your stomach stretches, and it will recede. One plate with no seconds works. Now let me give all of the scripture I quoted earlier: "Bodily exercise profited little, but Godliness is profitable unto all things."
Eat right, and you can get your exercise by hugging your mate. And that will make two people happy. Read your Bible more, and feed your stomach less, and you'll be thanking the Lord every time you practice my "Kneexercse" Pray on your knees and find it easier to get up afterward!
