Here we are at another New Music Friday! A lot of great singles and one big album release today, and I never finished sharing all the amazing music from last week! If you are a fan of hip-hop, or some non-traditional worship music, then you need to give Lecrae‘s new album a listen. I’m sharing one of my favorite tracks from that below.
22Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26and that they will come to their sense and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. (2 Timothy 2:22-26)
Be kind to everyone. Read that again. Be kind. To EVERYONE. Can you imagine how amazing this world would be if everyone was kind to everyone else? Instead of living in peace we CHOOSE to argue and raise Cain about facemasks and anyone who has different political views and opinions than we do. God made us all different. He designed us each to His liking and we are wonderfully made. This means that we all think differently as well. We are meant to be that way! Jesus loves us regardless of our opinions so why can’t we love each other the same way? Let’s make a promise to love better. Let’s lessen the amount of arguing we do and increase the amount of praising!
Reading plan: 2 TImothy 2:14-26
Deeper reading plan: Lamentations 2
Prayer and meditation: Pray for our country. Pray for love to conquer all. Pray that Christ infects our hearts and ignites a final fire of revival to sweep this land.
Fitness challenge: Free for all Friday-4 exercises at descending intervals (you’ll need a watch for this). We’ve done upper body, lower body, and abs. Today, we’ll do total body. For each exercise you will do six sets, each set is one minute. First set is a minute of straight work (do as many as you can), second set starts with 10 seconds rest, followed by 50 seconds of work. Next set is 20 second rest, 40 seconds of work. (Each set is 1-minute with your rest sets growing by 10 seconds until your last set is 50 seconds of rest and 10 seconds of pounding out reps).
