Some people may see fitness and faith as competing interests, but not me. In fact, 1 Timothy 4 tells us that physical training is of value (though maybe not the most valuable thing). 1 Corinthians 6 tells us that our bodies are not our own, and that we honor God by the way we treat them.
As Christians we are called to honor God with our bodies. Fitness is a balancing act though, as physical workouts are of value but we must be careful not to become narcissistic and self-consumed. See what the Bible says about working out.
You know, it’s really easy to become self-centered when we’re pursuing our physical fitness. And it’s really easy to become self-centered just on our entire spiritual journey. So the question is “How do we fight against that?”
