CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
An excerpt from Day 2 of “Known- Finding Deep Friendships in a Shallow World”
Theologian Paul Tillich articulated the distinction beautifully when he said, “Language…has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.” One is toxic. The other is life giving.
The alone we speak of here is the toxic kind. Almost anything can trigger it. Aloneness unchecked turns us in on ourselves and destroys perspective. The gathered pain is an inch-by-inch slide off an emotional cliff. It is isolating. Left unresolved, it is a cancer.
Who chooses to be alone and disoriented in the dark? No one. Who wants to experience moments of unbridled joy or great hardship by themselves? No one. Human contact is life itself.
It is important to remember that F3 is intended to be more than just a fitness class. It is a venue for relationships. F3 is an excellent way to prevent loneliness for men.

Let your yes be yes and your no be no.  37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.  https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+5%3A37&version=NIV

1 Samuel 20 14 But show me unfailing kindness like the Lord’s kindness as long as I live, so that I may not be killed, 15 and do not ever cut off your kindness from my family—not even when the Lord has cut off every one of David’s enemies from the face of the earth.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Samuel+9&version=NIV

 “Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”

Ephesians 5:1-5: be imitators of God. Be in the world but not of the world. We are called to be different in the way we act and live our lives. We are called to be Christ-like. Consider this when doing anything: “would Jesus be sitting beside me supporting this?”
