The PAX headed up to the shop for some tabata work. Each round was 30s work, 15s rest. We cycled through the below exercises 5 times, with one extra round of rows to balance out, for a total of 21 rounds completed:

  • Single arm, elbow out row
  • Bicep curls
  • Skull crushers
  • Pullovers

The PAX went down to the track, partnered up, and completed a mini Greta. While one PAX did the exercise, the other PAX ran halfway down the track and back. Exercises included:

  • 50 blockees
  • 100 thrusters
  • 200 coupon swings

Mark 10:18 – “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it”
We’re studying Mark in my group at church. Arriving at this verse, my study bible describes three ways to help us “receive the kingdom of God like a child”:

  • Adult self sufficiency must recognize its need for the sovereign God
  • Adult moral defensiveness must humble itself before the holy God
  • Adult skeptical toughness must soften before the loving God

Additionally, a member of our church group related this to the way her daughter loves just being with her. Her daughter loves playing with her, loves laughing with her, loves just being in her presence. Embrace childlike faith. Pray that Jesus would free you of whatever self sufficiency, defensiveness, or skeptical toughness you might struggle with, so that we can thrive in our role as children of God.
