BOM
Tend Your Field
“We, however, will not boast beyond proper limits, but will confine our boasting to the sphere of service God himself has assigned to us, a sphere that includes you.” – 2 Cor 10:13

In the middle of this verse is a word we cannot see because it is hidden behind the English translation. It is the word metron, the Greek word Paul used in his original letter. It means “a measured space.” Even those of us who don’t read Greek can see that the word metron is related to our English word meter, a unit of measure. I think the right English word for metron is “field.” This makes the most sense of what Paul is trying to tell us.

Paul was saying three things to the Corinthians. First, God had assigned a field to him. Second, that field—like all fields—had boundaries. Third, that field contained everything for which God had given Paul responsibility. Paul was clear about where his lines of responsibility fell. He knew that the Corinthians were in his field of responsibility. The assumption is that he could have named other cities or people who were not his responsibility.

Now, I believe that what is true of Paul is also true of you and me. For every season of your life, God has given you a field to tend. That field is comprised of the people, things, and priorities God has assigned to you. Your job is to know your field, protect your field, and make sure that everything in your field flourishes according to the will of God.

This is what separates noble men from mere males. What summons true masculinity from the soul of a man is his decision to tend his God-assigned field with his God-given gifts for the glory of God and the good of others. That’s when a man steps up. That is when he starts to draw on the resources of great manhood that lay dormant within him.

This doesn’t mean that manhood is all duty. It doesn’t mean that manhood is all drudgery and responsibility. It does mean that a man sets himself upon the path of noble manhood the moment he resolves to tend the field God has given him for each season of his life.”

Stephen Mansfield, Building Your Band of Brothers

Three questions to reflect on:

  1. What are the boundaries of you field?
  2. How healthy is your field?
  3. What do you need to do TODAY to tend to your field?

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

With the recent flooding throughout Knoxville, I witnessed a lot of men ready and willing to jump into action to help out their neighbors. Men from our church group helped by digging ditches to divert water away from basements and crawl spaces. When they heard that friends and neighbors were in need, they dropped their Saturday plans and eagerly ran out into the rain to help. It was a great reminder that we as men have a longing to come to the rescue. We want to play the hero, to help others in need, to accomplish great feats in adverse conditions.

On the flip side, we as men are very often reluctant to ask others for help. We tend to wait until the very last minute to reach out to our brothers. We wait until our basements and crawl spaces are already filled with water before we’re willing to ask for help. Even though our brothers are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to jump into action, we attempt to do it ourselves for as long as we can…….until it reaches a point where it’s no longer manageable.

It’s as near as dammit one year since I started coming to F3. I never saw myself as someone who set an alarm at 5:00 am, nevermind set a 5:00 am alarm to go workout, yet here I am. Thanks to my F3 brothers for getting me out of bed. For making me accountable and getting me better. Thanks for the 2F lunches and the 3F events. Mostly, thanks for the early morning fellowship.  Here’s to another 12 months.
