Romans 12:2

”do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but transformed by the renewal of your mind, so that you can prove what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.”

Nowadays we clutter our minds, we cram them with so many worries, so many tasks, wants, reminders etc. so my COT today is just to say to take some time out of your day, whether it be 5 minutes or 30 minutes, turn off your phone, all electronics and relax or pray or whatever it may be as long as you renew your mind. We can’t push ourselves to be high impact men when our minds are always begging to fartsack, strength of mind is just as important as physical strength. You can’t push through the physical without first  conquering the mental.

The Morg is a top tier place filled with top notch men.
