      1. “Intervention of God Through Man”
      2. Reading the book “Wild at Heart” by John Eldridge and he talks about the intervention of a man for the betterment of a boy or man’s life. And I immediately thought of my stepfather stepping into that father figure role I desperately needed. So it’s been just amazing to see how God has put men and father figures in my life that have bettered me and pushed me to be a better man myself. And essentially that’s what F3 has been for me – being blessed to be able to come out here and push each other to get better physically but it’s also so much about that 2nd F – Fellowship. Taking this outside the workouts and creating fellowship and brotherhood together. So, man it’s been awesome and a blessing for me and the younger guys in college to see how God has intervened in my life and put F3 in my life and men like y’all to continually and intentionally push me to get better. So thank you.

From Joshua 6: 20-27

The walls of Jericho came tumbling down as my kids Bible Story book tells. If you read scripture the same thing happens, however there is death, destruction, and fire for the entire city of Jericho. Not the same as the kids’ version. Jericho stood in the way of Gods plan for His people. God did not take that lightly and had it completely destroyed. The same goes for sin in our lives. God takes sin seriously and will destroy sin so that we are able to follow Him. Find the sin, destroy it, leave no part of it standing, don’t look back, and keep moving. Galatians 4: 8-10

Run Forrest Run…

Element of Authentic Manhood – Stewardship
Matthew 25:14-30
“For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property.  To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.  He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more.  So also he who had the two talents made two talents more.  But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money.  Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them.  And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’  And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.’  His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’  He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’  But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed?  Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.  So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents.  For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.  And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

You get one life.  You get one shot at the work and relationships in your life.  Don’t be a consumer.  As HIMs our call is to stewardship, to taking what we have been giving and multiplying it for the glory of another.  It’s counteractive, but this is where real joy come from!  We find our lives as we give them away.

The stars were glimmering in all their majesty this morning as I drove through the gates of splendor at the Asylum. The warm fuzzies quickly dissipated with the collision of my face to the famous East Tennessee Humidity. Even at 5am, it’ll knock your teeth out.
