March 23: Training

 

Scripture Lesson: 1Timothy 4:6-10

 

On this date in 1951, the Brooklyn Dodgers signed a 21-year lease with the city of Vero Beach, Florida, for use during spring training. “Dodgertown” remained the Spring Training home of the Dodgers until 2010, when they moved their training camp to Arizona.

 

In Paul’s letter to Timothy, he encouraged him not only to do physical training, but also training that leads to godliness. To find out how to be more like God, we need to be in training, studying the Scriptures daily and spending time in prayer. It is easy to be distracted by this world and to get busy. If we are too busy to spend time studying God’s Word and spending time with Him in prayer, we are too busy! To be a great player in baseball, one has to train their body. To be a great Christian, one has to train their mind and soul.

  1. How is the physical training going in your life?

  2. How is the spiritual training going in your life?

  3. What things can we do to better train ourselves in the ways of God?

Are we moving toward godliness in our lives? Let us commit to train harder for His Kingdom and see the results He will bring to our lives.

The Akita is docile, but soeteimms spontaneous. Careful and very affectionate with its family. Intelligent, courageous and fearless. It is very willful and needs firm training as a puppy. The Akita is a first class guard dog. Japanese mothers would often leave their children in the family Akita's care. They are extremely faithful and thrive on companionship. The Akita is very aggressive to other dogs and animals and should therefore never be allowed to run off its lead around other animals. It should definitely be supervised with other household pets and children. Although the breed may tolerate and be good with children from his own family, he may not accept other children. If teased, Akita's may bite. Children must be taught to treat these dogs with kindness. This breed can be very food-possessive and willful. They are capable of ferocity, but with firm training, can make a fine pet. Obedience training requires patience, as these dogs tend to get bored quickly. The Akita needs to be with its family. It vocalizes with many interesting sounds, but it is not an excessive barker.The Akita is native to the island of Honshu in the region of Akita in Japan, where it has remained unchanged for centuries. Today, the Akita is considered the national dog of Japan and is designated as a Natural Monument. The breed has had many uses, first as an Imperial guard dog, then as a fighting dog, hunter of deer and bear, for sledding, and for police, army and guard work. The Akita has keen hunting abilities and can even hunt in deep snow. He has a soft mouth, so he is suitable for waterfowl retrieval. In Japan, small statues of the Akita are often sent to ill people to express a wish for their speedy recovery, and to parents of newborn children to symbolize health. The first Akita was brought to the USA by Helen Keller. American servicemen also brought Akitas to the US after World War II.
