Grow in the grace and knowledge of
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
—2 Peter 3:18
Pablo Casals, one of the greatest cellists of all time, was still practicing and playing in his 90s. An interviewer asked, “Mr. Casals, you are ninety-three years old, why do you still practice six hours a day?” Casals replied, “I think I’m making progress.”
Your physical health is mainly dependent on two things: diet and exercise.
So is your spiritual health.
Eat right. “One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Mt 4:4). Don’t binge on trash. Feed on the Word.
And exercise. “Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important, for it promises a reward in both this life and the next” (1 Tm 4:8).
Eat right and exercise, and you’ll still be bearing fruit in old age (Ps 92:14).
There’s no retirement age
for spiritual growth.
