If you continue to take in the Word of God but you don’t do anything with it; you don’t apply it and pass it along, you get spiritually overweight. Then what was designed for your health [and well-being] becomes a detriment to you. You should be exercising [what you learn] and sharing this stuff [in the lives of others]. Any athlete will tell you it’s easy to win games from an armchair. It’s something else to win on the field. Too many churches are filled with “armchair players” who see clearly what everyone else should be doing. But God has not called you to watch from the side-lines. He’s called you to get involved with the game.
