Our cells are always renewing. If they suddenly stopped replicating, we might last a few days, but eventually we would die. In the same way, if we stop growing spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, we might as well BE dead.
As we get older our cells start to replicate more slowly and we start to age. However we can still maintain our physical health by engaging our muscles and being careful about what we ingest. And we can continue to develop our spiritual muscles through prayer, meditation and study, exercise our emotional muscles by being present in our relationships and flex our mental muscles through exposure to new information.
Happy New Year!
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12: 2 ESV
Inhale Renew, Exhale Decline…
Inhale Replicate, Exhale Deteriorate…
Inhale Repair, Exhale Death…
