Built. #SomethingFresh


I think I have gotten used to having a one-word title. Let’s see how long that will last: )

Weekends and on holidays, I visit and almost always spend a night or two at my friend’s place. He has a spare room and is also a bachelor. It is usually a good time to unwind and plan for the coming week.

I however have observed his neighbor: a young man who must be in his mid-thirties, and very well built. Every 6am, I mean for the times I am at his place, he’ll truncate my sleep by knocking slightly on the door, especially the days my car is parked behind his. I knew what the knock was for – I needed to move the car, so he can drive out. He was always on shorts and his trainers. I presume he was going to do some exercises as I saw him doing a little warm up today. That sight spoke to

No wonder he looks well built. He has been investing his time, energy, and fuel in working out. And I looked within, what am I investing my time, energy, and resources in daily? Is it so with my spiritual life? Can I boldly say that every 6am I wake up to commune with my maker? Do I drive off to the mountain side to pray? Is it so with my mental development? My physical development?

To be built, you must build. Building takes energy, but you’ll always come out built. Bodily exercise profits little, but godliness with contentment is great gain.

Let us arise and build!
