1 Timothy 4:7 (New International Version)
7Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
It is a struggle to be godly because most of us have alot of distractions in our lives. These distractions seem to be pulling us away, and keeping us from being godly. (Certainly this is true for me). As I understand godliness, one has to follow the commands of God,and live these realities daily. Like the example in the video, sport is an obvious distraction for many, in the US it is football, in Malaysia many people are also fans of football(British not American style). This is just a small part of the total distractions we faced! Yet, God calls all to be godly. Certainly it is about our priorities, if we put God first,than we will do godly things. Otherwise, like in the video we ignore God, may not necessary be opposing God.
That's my two-cents worth on godliness. Watch the authour speak on the video.
