In the sermon on Sunday, our pastor spoke about the calling to endurance (patience) in loving others no matter how hard, no matter the persecution and hardship.
Romans 15:4 says, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope." These last three days of long distance/time of physical output have shown me how willing I am to grind for fitness performance, but then I have very little patience (endurance) for people who bother me for one reason or another. The opportunity to feel great about accomplishing an hour on the AB, is nothing to the knowledge of having shown a bit of love to a soul in need.
Up to 60min now, on the assault bike. Happy with the learning process of pacing, disciplined thoughts, and work capacity.
