The Unnecessary Gift

Sitting in a meeting yesterday, I was reminded of what a gift it is to be unnecessary. Today let's remember that God doesn't need our muscle, our grit or our flex. He doesn't need anything. He's God. We...are the needy ones. We need Him. More than we need to crush our goals, we need to be crushed by His grace. A thousand times more than we need to beat yesterday's best, we need to remember that it is already finished. Let's start the day with that thought.

God, please rearrange our workouts around You today. Let each rep, each mile, each stretch be a note in a symphony of praise; one that's pleasing to You. Help us remember that while our bodies have some value, the muscle we build on earth carries no weight in Heaven.

Please let our workouts be forgettable and our daily feats be nothing more than measurable reminders that You gave us limits. Like oil upon Your feet, we give You today's workout, and each meal, each session. It's all for You. May it please You. We love You.

For Discussion: God gave us the gift of being unnecessary. This is us opening it. A show of hands for those that need to be forgettable this week.
