Faith Weekend WOD - 8/17/2012 to 8/19/2012

Add to your knowledge...

Commit this passage to memory"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, 12 so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody." (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12)

  1. For whoever does this, thank you. I spend alot of time thinking about the wods that you have. I started crossfit in April and tend to become somewhat obsessive about it and this wod keeps me in perspective of not making crossfit an idol. This weekends verse is interesting in the way that last few wods were about being a witnesses for Christ. I usually think of witnessing as being out there and this verse talks about living a quite life, being productive and minding your own business. A lot of times words mean less that action. How many people do we witness to through our every day life? I have read several times about great men and women of faith who rocked the world, who said their greatest influnce was there Sunday School teacher, or their Godly grandma, etc. It is nice to be reminded of this verse when you feel you are not doing enought for Christ. Maybe your calling is to love your neighbor, the postman, the bank teller, the library helper, the gas station attendent, the sales clerk at Walmart, the UPS driver, etc.
