During the days of King Jehoiakim, son of King Josiah of Judah, the Lord told Jeremiah: “Go to the house of the Rechabites, and bring them to the house of the Lord, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink” (Jeremiah 35:2).
Jeremiah didn’t know about the Rechabites. And he didn’t know what God was up to. But, as usual, he obeyed, figuring he’d find out.
So he brought some of his own relatives and the whole house of the Rechabites into the house of the Lord, into the chamber of a man of God, and set before them wine and cups and said, “Have some wine” (35:5).
They refused. “We don’t drink. Our father Jonadab, of the house of Rechab, commanded us: ‘You shall drink no wine, neither you, nor your sons, forever. Neither shall you build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any wine: but all your days you shall dwell in tents; that you may live many days in the land where you are strangers.’ We have obeyed the voice of Jonadab, our father, in all that he has charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters; nor to build houses, nor to have vineyard, nor field, nor seed. We have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab, our father, commanded us. But when Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came up into the land, we came to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem” (35:6-11).
The Story of the Rechabites was very touching and it made me “see” God from a different perspective.Rechabites were so conscientious that they still obeyed the word of their deceased father though there was nothing in it for them.
God’s point was not that they were teetotalers, though that would be commendable. His point was that they honored their father and obeyed his word.Therefore,
THE OBEDIENCE OF RECHABITES PLEASED GOD

Koinonia is the anglicisation of a Greek word (κοινωνία) that means communion by intimate participation. It identifies the idealised state of fellowship and community that should exist within the Christian Church.
The word has such a multitude of meanings that no single English word is adequate to express its depth and richness. It is a derivative of koinos, the word for common. Koinonia is a complex, rich, and thoroughly fascinating Greek approach to building community or teamwork. 3 months ago

1.Develop Deep, Relaxed Breathing
If you participate competitively in sport or simply join the occasional fun run on a whim you are aware of the impact breathing can have on performance. Deep, relaxed breathing is the foundation of reducing performance anxiety and improving concentration. Yoga will help you develop a habit of breathing correctly. Yoga practice integrations the mind-body connection and athletes can benefit from this combination of skills training.
2.Increase Core Strength
Yoga poses are all about building core strength. The slow, focused movements require a strong mid-section and the isometric contractions of many exercises will add a new form of resistance training to your typical machine-based workouts.
3.Increase Flexibility and Range of Motion
Yoga routines incorporate slow, steady flexibility exercise that is ideal for athletes. Frequent yoga training may increase flexibility, and range of motion while relieving muscle tension. Whether you are a runner or a golfer, improved range of motion can often help improve performance.
Yoga is a perfect way to incorporate balance exercises into your training routine. Balance exercises are often overlooked by athletes, but are one of the most effective ways to correct muscle imbalance or body mechanic problems. With most sports and weight training routines you tend to perform repetitive motions that develop some muscle groups while others are ignored. Yoga can fix these imbalances.
5.It’s Great Cross Training
Yoga is a great low-impact way to cross train. Cross training is necessary for athletes who do the same sport or exercise routine year-round. Adding new exercises can help reduce injury, relieve training boredom, add variety and help recover from hard aerobic or strength workouts. Yoga can be done at a high or low intensity and there are hundreds of postures that can provide a workout for any athletic need.
6.Something for Everyone
There are many styles of yoga that range from very dynamic, active, movements that go from one posture to another (and result in a thorough aerobic workout) to more slow-paced practices that hold postures for several minutes and form an intense strength training and balance workout. 9 months ago
