Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is determined to follow in the footsteps of Tom Brady and play in the NFL until he reaches his mid-forties. Therefore, he employs a full-time “performance team”, uses the best available fitness technology, works out every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas and spends at least $1 million a year on his health—mind and body.
Not everyone has the kind of resources that Russell Wilson has to devote to physical fitness. However, we each should make it a priority to take care of ourselves. We should consider it an issue of stewardship to do what we can to maintain a level of fitness that will enable us to serve the Lord and people to the best of our ability.
“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”—1 Timothy 4:8.
