I discovered this quote yesterday from the King of Motivation, that I found quite thought provoking:
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar
It almost always seems that it helps us related to spiritual things when we bring them alive in the physical world. Really, what if we treated our bodies the way we sometimes treat our mind and spirit? How gross would that be. Of course sometimes we do and then we are covered in the muck that is sin. Double gross. – gag me with a spoon gross.
That’s in itself is fairly good motivation to keep motivated and moving in a forward direction. And somehow this all sounds awfully familiar, like it has been written somewhere before:
13 But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. Hebrews 3:13New American Standard Bible (NASB)
