This weekly sub-series can assist your physical and relational exercise of 24 dynamics of spiritual fitness in Scripture that parallel physical and relational fitness:  balance, flexibility, initiative, partners, weight, etc.  You can print some or all of the Scriptures and read them to each other as you walk, tape them to a wall to guide discussion and prayer as you lift weights, etc.  Each of the dynamics has corresponding devotional articles, music videos, suggested applications, and more.  Use whatever is most helpful to strengthen your love for God and your neighbors through Christ.  If you’re interested in learning more about this holistic approach to fitness, you can read my free book W.A.I.T. Training.

Genesis 4:20-22, 26, “Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock.  His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play stringed instruments and pipes. Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain’s sister was Naamah . . . Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, “God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.” Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh.  At that time people began to call on the name of the Lord.”

1 Samuel; 16:7, “But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

2 Samuel 14:25-26, “In all Israel there was not a man so highly praised for his handsome appearance as Absalom. From the top of his head to the sole of his foot there was no blemish in him. Whenever he cut the hair of his head—he used to cut his hair once a year because it became too heavy for him—he would weigh it, and its weight was two hundred shekels by the royal standard.” (But his father, King David had never disciplined him for anything, and he tried to overthrow his father’s throne)

Proverbs 31:30, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Song of Songs 1:6, “Do not stare at me because I am dark, because I am darkened by the sun.  My mother’s sons were angry with me and made me take care of the vineyards; my own vineyard I had to neglect.”

Jeremiah 9:23-24, “This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom     or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this:  that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,”
declares the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

James 1:22-25, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirrorand, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

1 Peter 3:4-5, “Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.  For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. . .

    • Thanks. Just let him know that the website is still very much “under construction”. I’d like to have at least the foundational blog and supporting video for every page and tab before I start “publishing”.

      Grace and peace in Christ,
      Jeff
