CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Remembering a friend who I was able to spend some time with and learn from his wisdom.  He was a WWII veteran and shared his experiences and relationship with God with me over breakfast each Friday morning.  One morning he shared his thoughts as we talked about God’s Glory. As we usually think of F3 as a lot of physical fitness, I present to you “P3” for spiritual fitness.  My friend shared with me 3 things he thinks about when he thinks about God’s Glory.  God’s Presence, God’s Power, and God’s Purpose.  Let’s remember to be in God’s presence, rely on His Power, and seek His Purpose for our lives.  When we do we will not only experience His Glory but we will glorify Him.

When we go anywhere we represent someone.  Either our family, company, church, etc.  Through our speech, actions, attitudes, etc. let’s represent well.  More importantly, if we are followers of Christ, be aware that we represent Him and to make sure our words, attitudes, actions, etc represent Him well to others.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Philippians 2:3-4  Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

We can all be selfish with our time and resources.  Let’s humble ourselves and seek to serve others in a way that glorifies God.  Put others first and seek to do what we can to meet their needs and not just our own.
MOLESKIN:
Everyone keep in mind the Fountain City AO that they are trying to get started.  If anyone can attend some of those workouts it would be greatly appreciated especially to the Mend House guys who have been coming out.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Quote from “Spiritual Leadership” by Oswald Sanders.  “Leaders must draw the best out of people, and friendship does that far better than prolonged argument or mere logic.”

Just by being here you all tend to draw out the best in me.  If we want to influence others in any way, we need to cultivate relationships instead of just telling them what we thing they should do.  Friendships are the foundation of inspiring others to be better.
MOLESKIN:
Pray for Jenners friend who lost a loved one recently.  Also pray for Cowbells family with their new baby.
