Dads, come lift biblical and theological weights with us on Tuesdays at 6:15am starting on 8/15. You need to be strong. For your faith. And for the faith of your family. They are depending on you.
Lots of men wake up early to hit the gym. Why? Because they care about being in shape. They understand that life is better when their bodies are functioning well. So they set the alarm (that’s hard). They get up (that’s hard). They go somewhere early (hard). They lift heavy things (hard). They put their lungs and heart to the test (hard). Some buy special workout clothing, protein, creatine, pre-workout, post-workout, and more. Why? Because they are investing in their bodies.
Paul told Timothy that physical exercise is of some value, but godliness has value for all things (1 Tim 4:8).
So come on Tuesdays. We are going to systematically work our theological muscles together as men. We are going to wrestle with the core ideas of the faith. Why?
Because we want to be strong. We know that we will function best when we are healthy theologically. But there is more. We will also help our families best when we are healthy.
They are your team. In the NFL, linemen lift weights for their own good (they want the next big contract). But linemen also lift for the good of the quarterback. Every QB wants a strong line. And the linemen lift for the running back. Every RB wants strong blockers. And the linemen lift for the receivers. Every wide receiver wants a line that allows them time to get open.
Your lifting is an investment in your team. You are the lineman. Your strength gives your spouse a bigger, better chance for a ProBowl year. Your strength gives your kids a better chance to press through hardships and distractions as the press on toward the future.
So… come lift theological weights with us.
