reading bibleGodliness will make a difference in your life and also enable you to make a difference in the lives of those around you. The Bible says godliness is profitable in all things. This is talking about prosperity for the whole man—spirit, soul, and body. In addition, the Bible says that the profit godliness brings is for this life and the life to come. And the profit that godliness brings in this life includes more than just finances and material profit.

First Timothy 4:7–8,15 says, “But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come... Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.”
Notice particularly verse 8: “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” Although bodily exercise does profit, the reason it “profiteth little” is that it only profits in one area of your life and only for a limited time.

Exercise does build you up physically, but it won’t build you up spiritually or mentally. But godliness is profitable unto all things. It pays off in everything, “...having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.”

Too many times, Christians only think about what a great day it will be when we all get to Heaven. And that will be a great day, thank God! But God’s promises are for more than just the next life. Paul said living for God is profitable in this life as well as in the next one, “...having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come!” (1 Tim. 4:8) 

Godliness pays off here and hereafter. 

“Godliness” simply means living for God. And how do you live for God? By doing exactly what Paul said in 1 Timothy 4:12.

"Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."

Be an example for believers in word, in conduct (or manner of life), in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity. That’s living for God. And living for God is profitable!
