The average person has a stride that is 2.5 feet long. Using this stride length, there are roughly 1,500 steps in the average person’s mile.
Each mile that a person walks burns roughly 100 calories. If a person was to commit to walking 4,500 extra steps per day, or roughly three extra miles, they would be burning an extra 300 calories a day. Burning 300 calories each day leads to a weekly deficit of 2, 100 calories. After a month, that’s roughly 9,000 calories burned, which equates to approximately 2.6 pounds lost.
Keep it up for a year and you’re looking at over 31 pounds lost!
The aim of our instruction is love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. 1 Timothy 1:5
We get offended when we receive instructions from others. Our mind, will and emotions often are resistant and our spirit does not receive the instructions.
Throughout the course of our work for God we will receive input from others, sometimes constructive, sometimes seemingly defeating. We must be open to how God may be speaking to us through others and ask for the Holy Spirit for discernment for when we need to be corrected.
Exercise of the Week: Lean into instructions and don’t miss the opportunity the Holy Spirit is giving you.
