Proverbs 27:17
As
 iron sharpens iron,

So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

As men we need to be pushed and challenged by other men. Each of us is iron, but that does not mean each of us is the same. You cannot sharpen a sword with another sword, you must sharpen a sword with a file. There are many times in our lives where we need to be the sword, being sharpened by the men around us, but we will also need to be the file to sharpen our brothers as needed. This process is not just physical, it includes mental and emotional aspects as well. At our AOs we all have different skills and abilities, we need to be willing to use those to lift up our brothers when needed, push and pull them along, and even be confrontive and abrasive as necessary to equip our brothers to be the leaders they need to be.

MOLESKIN:

As I take the AO Q over from A-Rod, I think over the past year and 8 months since I started attending F3 at the Brickyard. I am not the same man I was when I started. I am stronger physically yes, but also mentally and emotionally. I am willing to step into the hard leadership situations as a direct result of Qing a group of men in the gloom. I never thought a post on Facebook would change my life as it has, I am grateful that A-Rod took the chance to start the AO at Brickyard. He is a true HIM that has definitely impacted the men of Powell in a positive way.

INTENTIONAL
Webster’s dictionary defines Intentional as done by intention or design INTENDED.

As men participating in the 1st F of F3, we have an intentionality of waking up and going to a workout in the gloom. This is not always an easy thing to do, but it makes us better men. I have been a part of F3 for 1 year and 8 months. In that time I have done many things that I never thought I would be capable of, but it all starts with intentions.

  • I intentionally set my clothes and shoes out the night before a workout.
  • I intentionally set my alarm (sometimes multiple).
  • I intentionally eat better.
  • I intentionally drink more water.

These are all things that I do for the 1st F. But F3 is more than just fitness, we have Fellowship (2nd F) and Faith (3rd F). I will admit, I find myself struggling with being intentional with the 2nd F. I am naturally a loner. I like my time by myself. This is a problem. As I continue to accelerate my 1st F, I find that I need the 2nd F and 3rd F more and more. If I can surround myself with other HIMs that are accelerating, than I can join them and accelerate along side. It is the intentional aspect of joining others who are like minded and growing that will cause me to be better as well.

So I asked my F3 brothers this morning, what are you going to be intentional about in your life?

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Leadership – As men in our communities, we need to look for the opportunities to step up into leadership positions and not have the expectation that someone else will do it. We also need to seek out those opportunities for us to become mentors to those men not as far along the path as we are and to seek out mentors for ourselves. Everyone of us need to be sharpening the men following us and in turn getting sharpened.
