You reap what you sow. The world tells us to sow our wild oats while we’re young and then settle down later to be responsible men, husbands and fathers. The problem with this is that the bible clearly tells us we will reap what we sow. Is it any wonder that the man who spent his teenage years partying now has a hard time staying away from the same crowd? Or the man who spent his time looking at pornography while young now struggles with this in his life? As fathers this is something we need to be aware of with our children. I want my children to experience life to the fullest – I want them to experience joy, sadness, success, failure, love, heartache, friendship and animosity as they round out to be adults. However, as my oldest child enters his high school years I am increasingly aware of my responsibility as a father to set appropriate guardrails so that my children experience all they can, while not establishing bad habits that they will reap later in life.

Today was Peyton’s last day with the PAX before he relocates to FL. We’re all going to miss him in the gloom! Peyton is a HIM and the Orlando F3 PAX will be better because of him. Tclaps brother!

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”
Psalms 1:1-3

The key here is that the tree bears its fruit in season, not every second of every day and not before it is ready. Faithfulness usually takes time. Just because you don’t see fruit yet doesn’t mean you won’t, it just means you need to keep it up and be faithful. Don’t get caught up with the jokers and the smokers…delight in the Lord and His word and you’ll see change.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬

Our plans usually don’t work out exactly the way we want them to.  How many of us have had a grand idea of something and had it all planned out in our head or even on paper only to see it change completely when we try to execute it. …But what we don’t realize is that God’s plan is not always our plans. It may seem frustrating and even painful but Gods plan is so much greater than we can even grasp.  e.g. Relationships, work etc.  …So next time that we have something bust up our plans, we need to know what plan IS solid. HIS plan for us.

“In this life we are not only held accountable for our actions, but also for our in-actions”

All of us in this PAX are leaders, fathers, brothers, friends, and other forms of High Impact Men. When we recognize a situation needs our involvement and then choose not to engage, that is an in-action. While we are not actively doing wrong, that in-action has consequences that we will be help accountable for. Push yourself to engage in areas that you might be ignoring. Abscess pointed out that James 4:17 addresses this as well:

“If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them”
