Ranger/Health and Fitness

Requirement 1

Learn the value of divine power & rest by:

  • For five consecutive days, spend eight minutes each day in a quiet spot (no electronics, books or distractions) and reflect on ways God has touched your life during the last 24 hours.
  • Share what you liked and didn’t like about your quiet time with a friend or your group.
  • Keep a sleep log for seven days.
  • Find an article on how a lack of sleep affects the body and make a presentation about what you have learned (are you getting enough sleep?).
  • Read these texts: Ex. 31:17, Ez. 20:20, Isa. 58:13 & 14; Matt. 12:11 & 12.
  • Discuss with your group, “How will I keep the Sabbath so it will be a meaningful experience in my relationship with God and positively impact my physical health?”

Quiet Time and Sharing

in today's fast paced world, it can be tough to step away for even a few minutes. A few minutes of reflection on how God is touching your life will help you focus and be thankful for the things God is doing for you. It will be insightful to see how other people feel about their quiet time exercise.

Sleep Log

Each day record when you went to bed/sleep and when you woke up. How many hours of sleep each day. Any naps? Record if you woke up during the night. Do you remember dreaming? Did you eat just before bed and did that impact your sleep? If you slept away from home, like on a camping trip, how did that change your experience? How did you feel each morning? The idea is to become aware of your sleep patterns and factors that impact how you sleep and feel.

Are you getting enough sleep?

Bible Reading

It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’”
Exodus 31:17 (NKJV)

...hallow My Sabbaths, and they will be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the Lord your God.’
Ezekiel 20:20 (NKJV)

“If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath,

From doing your pleasure on My holy day, And call the Sabbath a delight, The holy day of the Lord honorable, And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, Nor finding your own pleasure, Nor speaking your own words, Then you shall delight yourself in the Lord; And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.

The mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Isaiah 58:13,14 (NKJV)

Then He said to them, “What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out? Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”
Matthew 12:11,12 (NKJV)


Spending time in God's creation can help both spiritually and physically. Go on a nature hike. Collect photographs, sand, or drawings toward a Nature Honor. Spend Sabbath camping. The combination of fresh air, exercise, and nature will help clear your mind of the secular, improve your physical being, and bring you closer to God.

A day of rest every week has been proven to improve physical and mental performance. The Sabbath is good for our bodies and our minds.
