    V.8 - bodily exercise does profit little - when compared to spiritual exercise. But - the bodily DOES profit while here on earth , especially for those with diabetes, arthritis, overweight, heart problems, etc. So we do not want to use this verse as an 'excuse'; God does expect us to help ourselves and He will pick up the 'slack', or rather that which is lacking in our efforts.
