I think this video of the dog patting the treadmill with one paw is absolutely hilarious! He seems to know that he is supposed to interact with the exercise equipment, he just wants to put in the minimum effort!
A lot of people are posting this video on social media and comparing it with their own attitude toward exercise. Lots of people will readily admit that their efforts to keep in shape are a bit lacking, to say the least.
Sadly, this is the kind of effort, or lack thereof, that many people put forth to get stronger spiritually. They know that they are supposed to be doing something, but they do as little as they possibly can.
Whether we are exercising physically or spiritually, let’s always strive to give the kind of effort that will actually yield some results.
“…Train yourself to be godly. 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 4:7-8.
