We are going to have times in our lives when we feel like hitting the reset button.  Times when we need to stop, take stock of our current situation, and then find the direction and motivation to move forward.

Galatians 6:9-10  So lets’ not get tired of doing what is good.  At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.  Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone – especially to those in the family of faith.

What a great way to start my 44th year on the Big Ball.  The PAX showed up ready to burn some goo; mumble chatter was high and the effort was amazing.

Respect + Responsibility=Reliable

What is Respect?
When you respect everyone from your friends, classmates, parents, adults and even enemies…people will respect you.

What is Responsibility?
When you take responsibility for yourself and the things that you are supposed to do, people know that they can trust you to do your best.

So when you have respect for others and you take responsibility for what you need to do, you become Reliable.

Reliable means that people know they can count on you to do what is right and what needs to be done. That they don’t need to worry about having to tell you two times to do something. Or wonder if it will get done. They know you respect them and that you want to do your best for them.
Your dads that brought you here today want you to be reliable. We want you to be the best person you can be. God loved you so much that he made you so that you can choose what you want to do. He put your dad in charge of teaching you the right way, to be respectful, to be responsible so that you can be reliable

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.

1 John 1:5 – 2:2 says we should walk in light and admit our sins.  If we admit our sins doesn’t that admit weakness?  What happens when we struggle, have a fight with our wives, get frustrated with our children, have a bad day at work?  Who do we turn too?  How do you attempt to justify the struggle to yourself?  Do you attempt to be better by improving yourself?  

John reminds us to confess our sins and our “advocate” Christ will cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  This my brothers is self-submission.

Goal – “give what God wants from me”

Focus – “changing my heart”

Center of Dependency – “God and His Holy Spirit”

Outcome – “Life”
