I lost my cool yesterday with my son and wife, and I had to look for this scripture to refer to.
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.”
‭‭James‬ ‭1:19-20‬ ‭NIV‬‬

God is very slow to anger with us. If he wasn’t, we would be gone a long time ago. How can we not do the same to our family and friends?                      MOLESKIN:
We lost a CMU today. It served us well.

Parents, if your eyes ever see or your ears ever hear the sin and weakness of your children, it’s never an accident, it’s never a hassle, it’s never an interruption; it’s always grace.

Take an “inside look” at your heart on a regular basis.  Ask your self deep and challenging questions.  Examine yourself before the Lord.  Don’t walk away with guilt and shame, but instead respond with Godly repentance which will lead you closer to the Lord, with a better understanding of your desperate need for HIM in every area at all times.   Read 1 Timothy 5.  We have 2 choices:  1) Run after the Lord day and night or 2) Run after our own pleasures and desires and if we do this we will be dead even though we are alive.

Nothing extremely profound today. It was my final Q… for the month of January. February is a new month with a bunch of opportunities to step up and lead!
Over January I snagged a Q at each of the 7 Knoxville AOs. Getting out and working with men from all the areas of town was a real joy and privilege. If your AO’s slots get filled up, grab a Q or two at another AO. You’ll be glad you did!
Apparently box jumps on the big rocks by the hill are deemed a bit risky by most of the PAX. Something about not wanting to fall down a cliff or something? I dunno. Some of them managed to not jump all the way over their rocks…
3rd F opportunity this Sunday delivering basketballs and leading 2.0 workout at Wesley House, Alcoa CSAUP
