BBC Video – Lion Attacked by Pack of Hyenas (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5V6gdu5ih80)

Proverbs 17:17, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”

Often it’s not the big things in life that take us down, it’s an overwhelming presence of small things.  Temptation comes like a pack of hyenas, nipping at our backside staying just out of reach.  If it was just one or two things we could probably handle it, but it’s never that few.  Pretty soon we are surrounded, exhausted and in danger of being eaten alive.  That’s when having a battle buddy is more than just a cliche, it’s a life line.

We aren’t meant to fight our battles alone.  God has given us His Spirit and surrounded us with His people.  Open your eyes and look around…who are the men you would want next to you when the hyenas come?  More importantly, are you the type of man others would want to call on?

Matthew 5:43-48
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?  And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

The word “perfect” doesn’t mean without error, it means mature.  Our lives are to be marked by daily growth.  Sometimes it will be slow and slight, sometimes large and loud, but either way we should be seeking to grow physically, mentally, relationally, and spiritually everyday.

The growth point in this passage is love, specifically loving those who don’t love us.  It’s easy to love those we like, but what we are called to as HIMs is to even love those who stand against us.  This does NOT mean we let people trample over us or take us off mission.  It means we relate in a way that is void of hate or anger.  How we live and relate is what sets us apart.  We live on mission for a purpose.

This week you will face “enemies.”  Some you will know personally, some you won’t.  Brothers, choose love!  I will warn you now, you can’t do it in your own strength.  The good news is you don’t have to.  When faced with a difficult situation, seek help from above.  Pray that God would grant you the love for others that he has for you.

Tend Your Field
“We, however, will not boast beyond proper limits, but will confine our boasting to the sphere of service God himself has assigned to us, a sphere that includes you.” – 2 Cor 10:13

In the middle of this verse is a word we cannot see because it is hidden behind the English translation. It is the word metron, the Greek word Paul used in his original letter. It means “a measured space.” Even those of us who don’t read Greek can see that the word metron is related to our English word meter, a unit of measure. I think the right English word for metron is “field.” This makes the most sense of what Paul is trying to tell us.

Paul was saying three things to the Corinthians. First, God had assigned a field to him. Second, that field—like all fields—had boundaries. Third, that field contained everything for which God had given Paul responsibility. Paul was clear about where his lines of responsibility fell. He knew that the Corinthians were in his field of responsibility. The assumption is that he could have named other cities or people who were not his responsibility.

Now, I believe that what is true of Paul is also true of you and me. For every season of your life, God has given you a field to tend. That field is comprised of the people, things, and priorities God has assigned to you. Your job is to know your field, protect your field, and make sure that everything in your field flourishes according to the will of God.

This is what separates noble men from mere males. What summons true masculinity from the soul of a man is his decision to tend his God-assigned field with his God-given gifts for the glory of God and the good of others. That’s when a man steps up. That is when he starts to draw on the resources of great manhood that lay dormant within him.

This doesn’t mean that manhood is all duty. It doesn’t mean that manhood is all drudgery and responsibility. It does mean that a man sets himself upon the path of noble manhood the moment he resolves to tend the field God has given him for each season of his life.”

Stephen Mansfield, Building Your Band of Brothers

Three questions to reflect on:

  1. What are the boundaries of you field?
  2. How healthy is your field?
  3. What do you need to do TODAY to tend to your field?
