Many Americans are purchasing fitness trackers to help them stay in shape. These small devices, many designed to be worn like a bracelet or wristwatch, help the user keep track of how much exercise they are getting.
The demand for fitness trackers remains strong, even though many owners are no longer using theirs. One man gave his device to his father-in-law. A mother gave hers to her children. Another lady took hers off several months ago to recharge the battery, and she hasn’t picked it up since.
One company estimates that only half of the nearly 20 million people who had bought their product were still actively using it as of the first quarter of 2015.
Yet the sale of fitness trackers remains strong, even as many people neglect to actually use them.
It’s sort of like the Bible, right? The Bible continues to be a best-seller worldwide, even as fewer people read it and put its words into action.
If we want to be spiritually fit, we had better get moving! We had better read the Word and live out its truth!
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”—James 1:22.
