Proverbs 24:33-34
It can be easy to have a good habit slip away even from just a little bit of rest from it. Be on guard not to let transient events derail your long term success. Sometimes it’s tempting to squeeze in one more thing by taking a “short break” on a consistent good.

“We are men of action. Lies do not become us.”
Who do we lie to? Others? Ourselves? Our God?

One way we lie to all three is by pretending we will live forever.
Think of your legacy. What do you picture? Money? A business? Heirlooms or possessions?
Which of these will survive 10 years? 20 years? 50? 100? Eternity?

Steve Jobs was one of the most influential people in the world while he lived and continues to be. However, within months of his death, Apple released a product he said they’d never make: the iPad Mini.

Do not lie to yourself and pretend that your material work will leave a legacy for your family. The only true legacy we can leave is by passing our values from the Word of God to others in our lives. The disciples we make will outlive us way longer than any work of our hands.

I just read the speech from Henry V, cause Boom. Context is that the King has just heard mentioned that his cousin was wishing they had more men for the upcoming battle:
What’s he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin:
If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires:
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England:
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more, methinks, would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made
And crowns for convoy put into his purse:
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is called the feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian:’
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispin’s day.’
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember’d.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember’d;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Heels to Heaven

Escape from Haw Ridge April 5

Shared Hebrews 12: 1-2. We need to put aside our weight and our sin and run the race of endurance. This is tough as we all know, life can be difficult. However, we have a Savior in Christ to look to for help, guidance and rest. We also have his word, prayer, praise and each other. We as brothers, as a Band of Brothers can support, encourage and lift up each other.

>From a deck deal 10 cards face down. Each time you flip one, do the exercise, then flip the next on top, do both, then next all three until all 10 are flipped. Then the chosen one has to recall (with Pax assistance) all ten in reverse order and execute each one as a group. If there are any mistakes, finish with 20 burpees.
First round, one rep of each to learn.
Second round, 5 reps of each
Third round, 7 reps of each and sprint across the field before flipping each card.

Remembering doesn’t work like we want. We like the computer kind of memory where we just put it in, then we can get it back exactly the same whenever we like. But we remember some things and forget others. Why? Are there different ways to remember? How do I remember what is important?
Because we aren’t computers, we have developed methods of remembering. Though the words ritual, liturgy, and tradition aren’t much in vogue, they are a powerful means to remember well. A ritual provides repetition, ingraining that which you repeat. Liturgy acts out a story, activating many senses in an experience that sticks better than a fact. Tradition filters the multiplicity of that which might be remembered and holds dearly to that which ought to be remembered.
These things are on my mind as we approach Holy Week, in which Christians use these tools to relive and reinforce what we believe is the fundamental truth of the universe. But the approach applies across the spectrum of life, and you should use them to prioritize the things that fill your mind.
