CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I was reminded of 2 important truths in my life during the Mountain Man Memorial March this past weekend.
- When I am focused on my own individual circumstances, I lose the ability to serve others.
- I need brothers surrounding me, especially during the difficult, painful times.
I was reminded of those lessons during the physical activity of rucking, but they are applicable to all aspects of life. If we are so focused on our own circumstances, we can’t be there to lift up our brothers. We can’t be present for our wives and for our children. We can’t serve others the way that God is calling us to serve.
During those difficult seasons of life, our natural tendency as men is to isolate ourselves. But more than ever, that’s when we need our brothers. We all experience peaks and valleys, and when we’re in the valley, we need a strong-hearted brother to help us get back up on our feet. As HIM’s, we need to be the men reaching out to help our fellow brothers………….and we should be humble enough to realize that we will inevitably find ourselves in the valley at some point and be in need of our brothers to lift us back up.
