Profitable in all things....

I Tim. 4:8 For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.

I was teaching my littlest sister spelling and reading from dear old Alpha-Phonics, when we came across a word she could not spell because she could not understand it's meaning.

As I tried to explain, her picture-perfect face wrinkled in confusion, and I knew I was not explaining well enough. I was about to try again, when she interrupted me. Her face light up, and she quoted a memory verse with that word in it-
"Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”

I suppose "kept is the past tense of keep" was a bit over her head, but I sure didn't think of a Bible verse immediately....out of the mouths of babes, eh?
