A Little Shoulder Work.

THE SCENE: Starry sky with Orion shining brightly overhead.

Enjoyed a great preruck with Bootheel, Harbaugh, and Giant. Very meaningful discussions on topics such as men’s bible studies, marriage, and other struggles most men are dealing with.  

Done. No one is a professional athlete. Don’ t  hurt yourself before you start your day job.

Matthew 4:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

This verse is a paradox to YHC on many levels. Here you have the devil tempting Jesus. Also you have the devil in control of the world when we like to think of God in control at all times. This is usually are first thought in the time of tragedy when people always seem to blame God for tragedy “If God is so loving or so powerful, why does he allow these things to happen.”

Commentary on the above verse: 

Satan tempted Christ to idolatry with the offer of the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them. The glory of the world is the most charming temptation to the unthinking and unwary; by that men are most easily imposed upon. Christ was tempted to worship Satan. Jesus rejected the proposal with abhorrence. “Get thee hence, Satan!” Some temptations are openly wicked; and they are not merely to be opposed, but rejected at once. It is good to be quick and firm in resisting temptation. If we resist the devil he will flee from us. But the soul that deliberates is almost overcome. We find but few who can decidedly reject such baits as Satan offers; yet what is a man profited if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Christ was ministered to (by angels) after the temptation, for his encouragement to go on in his undertaking, and for our encouragement to trust in him; for as he knew, by experience, what it was to suffer, being tempted, so he knew what it was to be ministered, being tempted; therefore we may expect, not only that he will feel for his tempted people, but that he will come to them with seasonable relief.

Prayers for Grimace as he begins new employment.

PAX manhandled this workout. YHC knew they would.

Speedy is an awesome AOQ.
