I got this devotion piece forwarded from a friend. It’s a great reminder that we must keep fit if we want to keep loving others, or in other words, we keep loving others by keeping ourselves fit.
“Love is exhausting. It’s work to really love. Have you ever felt like, ‘I don’t have any more love to give’? Most people don’t understand that their physical condition has a strong impact on their relationships and their ability to love.”
“What happens to your relationships when you’re run down? Little issues become big problems when you’re tired. You’re more cranky, defensive, and critical when you’re physically low.”
