In Freed to lead a Sad Clown has 3 holes that need to be filled. First is Pogo 40 where a man loses 40 lbs, just to gain it back, to lose it again, and to gain it back. The Sifter has to do with loneliness. A man has is Legacy Friends from High School and College, goes on Man Dates and has some work friends. This is a problem because we lack accountability. An acquaintance will not tell you when you’re backsliding. The last is The Reacher. It’s about a man who drifts aimlessly without real purpose. The only way to have real purpose is for a man to abandon himself and faith in something that he cannot see.
As men it’s alway easier to help someone than it is to accept help. No matter what we’re going through, there is either someone who has gone through it, is going through it now, or will go through something similar. We have to remember that when we allow someone to help us, we’re also giving them the opportunity to help us.

I recently discovered that my wife often adds people to her daily, weekly, and monthly task lists. It’s a simple way to remind herself to take a minute and thank someone, tell them she loves them, or catch up with an old friend. It’s a very simple way to mix random acts of kindness into our busy days. I encourage everyone to pick a person that haven’t reached out to in a while and reach out to that person this week. Whether it’s a simple high-five or an hour at lunch, there’s a good chance somebody around could use a pick-me-up.
I picked up this Q at the last minute because of P-Nut’s delay in West TN. I had been thinking of picking up a Q in November but hadn’t selected one. When I read P-Nut’s message on Group Me, I had two options: (1) Wait for someone to step up or (2) be that someone. I decided to be that someone and I owe that confidence to F3 Knoxville. Everywhere I look in this PAX, someone is working harder than I am. It’s incredibly motivating and I can’t express an appropriate level of gratitude for the impact it’s made in my life. You guys are incredible!

Doubt is something I have dealt with my entire life. I have doubted my ability to Q among many other things. Most importantly, I have doubted my salvation. In 1 John 5:13, John says “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may KNOW that you have eternal life.” God does not want us to doubt, but if we do, He is always faithful and comes through for us. If you have questions about the security of your faith, I suggest the book Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart by J.D. Greear.

“Spiritual warfare is not fighting darkness to restore wholeness.  It is fighting darkness to release virtue.” Larry Crabb

“Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.” Rom. 12:21

Understanding that our world is marked conflict and struggle impacts our understanding and experience of the world.  For example:

  • When we find ourselves experiencing hard times we don’t need to be blindsided…it is normal. This world isn’t as it should be.
  • The good that is in the world is worth fighting for!
    • The love of a spouse
    • The love of our kids
    • The innocence of children
    • Relief and of the oppressed
    • The preservation of what is good, right and lovely.
  • The importance of vigilance and “training in righteousness!”
    • Not perfection, simply doing what’s right.

We have another compelling reason to lock shields with other like-minded men. Despite what we see in movies and on TV, men don’t survive war alone…they survive and thrive within a team…within a TRIBE.

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, age 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

The ultimate sacrifice was provided through Jesus Christ’s death for our sins on the cross.  Our daily sacrifice comes through denying our selfishness. Search for moments today that you can intentionally deny your self through sacrifice to others.
