God is both Great King and Master of Mercy. Therefore we come before God with reverent submission (phục tùng tôn kính) and with bold admission (thú nhận). We come knowing that through Christ we will be admitted into God's presence and that in his presence we can admit everything about our live - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The king loved figs (quả sung), and ordered Peppe to be admitted to his presence, and a silver dish to be brought on which to put the figs. When Peppe uncovered his basket sure enough a layer of beautiful purple figs met the king's eyes, but underneath (phía dưới) there was nothing but dirt. 'How dare you play me such a trick?' shrieked (la hét) the king in a rage.

I’m happy to stay at home.”

If you are lucky to score, you are expected to step away again from the teammates (you've been quarantined a week with) to celebrate even though in the run-up to the goal you may have been just centimetres away from the very same players. It requires immense self-control (tự chủ) and presence of mind to control emotions in the moment of celebration.

"Eat one's Wheaties" -> nghĩa là chuẩn bị cả tinh thần lẫn thể xác để làm công việc khó khăn, cần nhiều sức lực. Wheaties là một loại ngũ cốc được quảng cáo là "bữa sáng của nhà vô địch" và trên bao bì có hình các vận động viên xuất chúng.

Ví dụ

No. I guess he didn't eat his Wheaties. He didn't quite catch them like he's been catching them. We've got to cover them regardless (bất chấp). He hit it pretty good most of the day but it didn't have the carry and pop that we're used to. We've got to expect that every kick is coming out anyway and be prepared for it.

Looks like the devil better eat his wheaties cause he is going to have competition when Griego dies! Everyone needs to be praying (cầu nguyện) for justice (công lý).

An unlimited user model, on the other hand, encourages people to look at customer feedback more frequently and provides flexibility in assigning alerts to anyone in the organization who is best equipped to follow up on them.

“The most important thing is to identify and isolate the cases, quarantine (cách ly) the people they were in contact with and follow up on them. That is why we increased the number of tests and in fact Malta is one of the countries with the most tests per capita.”
