Triceps and Racked Lunge (both legs count as 1)

Back to the flag.


2nd Tuesday lunch on the 12th. Location to be announced.

Matthew 6:34 is “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

There is more than one of these “don’t worry about the future” verses in the New Testament. This one is easier for me to grasp. To me, it says focus on what’s you’re doing right now. Where I used to work, we periodically hired consultants to promote various ‘programs’ such as the Quality Improvement Process. One of the programs had the mantra “Be Here Now”. I liked that. Focus on what’s in front of you. I don’t mean to suggest that you don’t think about and plan for tomorrow. But like many people, I try to multi-task. That often doesn’t work out well. Try to deal with what’s in front of you right now and get that done right so you won’t have to worry about it later because you messed up what you were doing right now.
