CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

How do we learn best?
By reading instructions or by watching how it is done by someone that knows the process?
Are we a study God’s word culture or are we a do God’s word culture? By doing rather that studying, we develop a culture that newcomers and the young feed off of. They learn by watching the faithful not by studying.
Lets go be a “Do God’s word” and not just a “study God’s word”

MOLESKIN:

“Obsessed is what the lazy call the dedicated.”
Have someone think you are obsessed with getting better. Not just at workouts, but at everything. Work, being a better father, son, brother, person. Be obsessed with helping others and serving God.

Good work and mumble-chatter this morning. The gas from the pax (Scooter) was much more tolerable than yesterday. The pax was jealous of my activity slacks (khakis).

Bringing F3 to the Mend House

F3 Knoxville has partnered with the men of The Mend House to bring our fellow brothers some Fitness, Fellowship and Faith. Reico Hopewell, The Mend House director invited us to hold a group workout a few weeks ago drawing over 30 men out on a cold evening. We have continued this with three additional workouts to date with more planned and possibly the birth of a new F3 location in Fountain City. One of the new F3 brothers who we named Bacon, said this after the last workout. “I Think I speak for all of us when I say even though its rough on us right now we truly enjoy and appreciate y’all taking the time and giving us the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. “. That is what it’s all about, leading, serving, and  encouraging each other. Stay tuned for a possible AO launch announcement in the Fountain City area in the next few weeks thanks to the effort of these men!

WORRYING DOES BO GOOD.

““So I say to you, do not worry about your life—what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? “Look at the birds of the air. They do not sow or reap or gather into barns; yet your Father in heaven feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:25-29‬ ‭TLV‬‬

Sticking your neck out for what’s right.

I used an example of my wife stepping up and taking on several people that were not doing what was right. She was willing to put her neck out there and take on a lot of work, lose relationships and even have people talk bad about her even though she did nothing wrong.

Its tough to stand up sometimes when you know if you do it could cause heartache. But, we need to stand up for what’s right and not let bad things happen as we turn the other way. I was very proud of my wife and I learned that she is not afraid to put herself on the line for what’s right.
MOLESKIN:
Great to see all the still sore GoRuckers out there loosening up those muscles. Awesome job fellas!

This week a friend of mine from high school hit rock bottom. He was truly broken in all sense of the word. He is suffering from drug addiction and he is being treated at a facility as we speak. It is when we are broken that we can truly see the overwhelming love of God. We ignore or forget his gift when things are going our way and we “have no need” for God. But when your broken and then made new, you can truly appreciate Gods gift to us. Example of a light stick, breaking and then glowing.
