Workout Buddies.

Alex and Elly, some of our dearest friends, had a conversation with a stranger who shared this little nugget after they were both evangelized to. Interesting and a great thought to chew on (I hope I get it right, this hearing it from the third person)…

“Christians today are spiritually obese. They eat a lot… know a lot, read a lot, go to a lot of church, are stuffed full with great words and thoughts… but they don’t exercise. They aren’t practicing it, building the muscle that makes it powerful.” We are just getting fatter and fatter and more immobile.

I’m thankful for friends like these who are exercising… not just “eating.” Because you are moving around and building muscle, we are to. Thank you for the inspiration, encouragement, and challenge.
