Pre-season Iron Pax Challenge at The Levee
THE SCENE: Glorious scene at The Levee. Larry was nowhere to be found. Low 70’s with the moon setting while the sun was rising. Many PAX were early, but Meter Maid was not late…he just didn’t show.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We often look forward to working hard with the PAX in the gloom, but we ought to be living on mission all throughout the day. One of the obstacles to being on mission is the selfishness that comes with wanting our own way, which has been a particular struggle for me recently.
Colossians 4:2-6 gives us instructions towards what our mission looks like:
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
My two challenges are first to be thankful in prayer, which moves us towards gratitude instead of selfishness. Second, for our words to be gracious. That sounds feminine, but it’s not. It means we speak to people with dignity and respect, the way we want to be spoken to.
Wide Right loves the mumblechatter, but it’s all in good fun. I’d love to Q a workout that silences him…but that might be a near impossible task.
GrowRuck…wish I could go.
