Went to the gym
Eating fruits and veggies
Drinking plenty of water
Recently decreased the amount of wine consumed in the evenings.
Check – this bible verse is surprisingly simple today, body is sacrificing and becoming acceptable!
Beseech – ask (someone) urgently and fervently to do something; beg earnestly
Wow, Paul must think this is pretty important to beg…
Brethren – fellow members, brothers

Mercies – compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm
Sacrifice – surrendering a possession
Holy – dedicated or devoted to the service of God

Still have got some work to do today…and tomorrow.
