Yesterday, I went to the surgeon and the news was all good; I reached all my targets and had my 20 staples removed. Even though the scar is about 10 inches long, I think it should heal ok. The real surprise in this knee replacement thing is the amount of hard work required to get any results at all. Ok, when I was in my 20's I lifted weights for a few years, but I never even came close to looking like any of these guys. But I wonder, how much is too much? Which reminded me of a verse in the New Testament.
1 Timothy 4:8 (WEB)8) For bodily exercise has some value, but godliness has value in all things, having the promise of the life which is now, and of that which is to come.
I remember how great I felt when I lifted weights, but that is nothing compared to the knowledge of what waits for me in heaven. When it comes to godliness, there is no such thing as too much; you just get better and better on the inside. As far as the body builders in the picture is concerned, too much muscle is just that ... TOO MUCH.
