7Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 8For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. – 1 Timothy 4: 7-8

As a group in F3, we place a heavy focus on our physical well being. We devote time, thought, and energy to bettering ourselves on a physical level. The credo, “no man left behind, no man left the same” has been said to me countless times when one of us is struggling to keep up with the PAX. This is the same approach we should take in our spiritual training.

I encouraged the PAX to hold each other to a higher standard. Do not allow your brother to be left in the dumps of their spiritual journey. And encourage your brother to not remain the same. Daily improvement in our pursuit of the next life is vital to us. Iron sharpens iron in a beatdown, but this is even more true in our spirituality. Put in the time, thought, and energy to better yourselves on a spiritual level.

1/3 of a mile is a long way while carrying heavy things.

Check Slack.
