The Good News of Jesus Christ - Part 8

Who Are You Serving?

Matthew 6:24
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.  You cannot serve God and money.
 
In the Bible passage, Jesus clearly tells us that we can only have 1 God in our lives.  God doesn’t want a rival with our time, our emotions, our desires, our energy, and our focus. 
We cannot serve God and table tennis
We cannot serve God and our job
We cannot serve God and our stuff

Smashing Tips!

Learn 3 important tips for smashing!

Read the Opponent’s Spin
All high-balls should not be smashed in the same manner.  When you see a high topspin ball, step back slightly, start your racket high, and smash forward and down.  When you see a high backspin ball, step forward, start your racket lower and the angle more open, while smashing forward and slightly up.
 
Add Spin to Your Smash
A smash with some topspin will possibly be 10% slower, but it will usually have about 50% more control.  Be consistent in smashing – add topspin!
 
Place Your Smash Correctly
