1 Timothy 4:6 If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, nourished by the words of faith and the good teaching you have followed.

God’s word feeds our Spirit like food feeds the body. Yes, food is important…..but God’s word has eternal significance, food does not.
1 Timothy 4:8  For the training of the body has a limited benefit, but godliness is beneficial in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come
