Cross Training: Spiritual Disciplines

If you’re into sports or follow a sport, you will be aware of the concept of cross training. Cross training is a practice done by athletes wherein they learn and exercise a sport that is different from the one they do professionally.

Cross Training

A swimmer may do biking, a basketball player may do swimming, a football player may do basketball. The objective behind cross training is to allow athletes to grow in other sports and gain the strengths in them.

As Christians, we are called to cross train in different principles. The Bible does not tell us to pray alone and not read the Bible. It does not tell us to fast, but not be generous. In this series, Cross Training, we look into practices that God has taught us and commanded us to grow in, and the spiritual implications of such.
