BOM – Squatter



This Q was not going to have any running but felt bad so I added two total laps around Hoppas Yard to give the PAX some rest. Last time I was at Scrooge, the Q (Squatter) had us run 3 miles with pain stations for a Spartan Training Session. This was my “payback” pain for a strong running AO. Hopefully they all enjoyed it somewhat or at least felt it later on.

At the end I read a quote by George Macdonald:

My Neighbor
A man must not choose his neighbor: he must take the neighbor that God sends him. . . . The neighbor is just the man who is next to you at the moment, the man with whom any business has brought you into contact.

Encouraged the PAX to take note of who is around you throughout the day and it is your choice on how to interact with that person. That person has a soul as well and if you are a believer, we must love our neighbor as instructed by Jesus Christ.

Ref: Mark 12:29-31

Thank you for letting me lead you today.

Wee-Man out.
