"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." --Mark 10:45
A few weeks ago we noticed freshly posted "LOST DOG" signs throughout the neighborhood. Every other tree bore the image of a cute, cuddly fur ball with big, sad, brown eyes. You couldn't help but stop and read it, nor could you miss the bold words: "REWARD IF FOUND."
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm a dog lover for sure. But there were a lot of zeros after that dollar sign. (Josey better stay real close to home if that's the going rate on the streets.) All I know is that two things must be true about that lost pup: 1) she's loved and 2) her owner will pay the price to get her home.
You know where I'm going with this, so forgive the comparison, but we too have gone astray. Even on our best days, we'd be forever lost. But God loves us so much that He allowed our ransom to be nailed to a tree; reward if found.
PRAYFIT Q&A: ANGLES
Q: Isn't one exercise, done at one angle, really enough for my biceps and triceps? Is it okay if I stick to just one exercise?
A: Great question. The answer is not as straightforward as you might like. We really want everyone to try multiple kinds of moves. Why? Because using different exercises and utilizing various angles ensures that you fully target as many muscle fibers as possible. So whether you're a guy who wants bigger arms or you're a woman who wants to tone and firm, the principles of angles and variety apply.
