Candy Land, FiA Style
11 PAX at The Nest worked their way through at least 1 round of Candy Land.
Quick warm up: High knees, butt kickers, jumping jacks, through the tunnels
Instructions: Partner up and we are going to play Candy Land just like when we were kids! Choose the first card off the top of the deck and you and your partner will perform the first exercise associated with that color. If you draw the same color again, do the next exercise on the list for that color. If you draw a double color, do that exercise twice. When you land on a special block with the peppermint, lollipop, peanut, or icecream, do the special exercise associated with that picture. Each time you finish the game put a tally mark next to your team color on the white board and start over going to the next exercise on the list of the color each time until time is up. Have fun!!
PEPPERMINT: 1 minute plank
PEANUT: 1 minute wall-sit
LOLLIPOP: 1 minute jump rope
ICECREAM: 1 minute supermans
The team that crossed the finish line the most times got to choose our cool down exercises.
Command and teach these things. Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:11-12
After Paul laid down the standards for elders and deacons, he provided an even steeper path for Timothy (and those who aspire to be like Timothy).
Speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity are subjective qualities because they cannot be measured. However, we all know that setting an example means to go the extra mile or two in those areas. Paul told Timothy to do that so the people would begin to respect him. Those qualities are intangible, but we all know when they’re not met. It’s up to each of us to determine if we meet our own standards for them.
Consider how we can be better examples in each of these five qualities: in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. Perhaps only one of the areas is your stumbling block. That’s what we focus on instead.
