For since the creation of the world, God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Can you guess what's in the box pictured above? No? Don't feel badly if you don't have a clue. I would be scratching my head, too, if that was all someone gave me.
Does this next photo help?
Hmm . . . Probably not.
How about this one?
Yep! It's our brand, new treadmill!!!
Ever since the Covid struck, my husband, Danny, and I have been taking walks outdoors, but with the summer heat in full swing, that's mighty uncomfortable. So, back in June, Danny orders this treadmill and some hand weights; it takes until late July for them to arrive! Our take is that lots of folks are quitting going to the gym, as we have, and are purchasing exercise equipment for home use. That would certainly explain the delay.
But Danny, with the help of my son, Daniel, don't delay in putting this cumbersome piece of equipment together.
At last, the treadmill is ready to go, and our new television screen is mounted!
My first workout is this past Tuesday, and I've yet to miss a day since then, nor do I plan to. It's so convenient, being right here at the house, that I have no excuse NOT to use it.
And as Christians, we have no excuse not to recognize the glory of God in all His creation, and to spread the Good News of Christ Jesus to everyone we meet. While bodily exercise strengthens us physically, our practice of prayer, Bible reading and witnessing to others strengthens us spiritually.
Both "workout" routines are necessary for a healthy, happy and balanced life.
So, what's your excuse?
