CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

No matter what conflict we encounter at work, at home, out in the world, we know we are not the first ones to be disliked, to be disrespected; we have a great example in Jesus who was spat on (because they were not observing COVID guidelines) and insulted and lied about and 1Peter2 tells us that “He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly.” I hope you don’t face any conflict in your day today, but if you do, let that be our example. Let us lead with restraint and leave our case in the hands of a higher power.

The WORD came from James 4:1-10. It is difficult sometimes to be humble and keep our focus on God rather than worldly gain. “Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.”

BOM
Everything we did this morning is nothing complicated or fancy.  Each man could do what we did alone with no problem…the question is would you?  The second F, Fellowship, is what empowers the first F (Fitness).  Our strength is drawn from each other.  Seeking to be the leaders we want to be in our families and community is hard work.  Each day we have to get up and recommit.  Doing it alone is a recipe for failure, but together we can make a little progress each day.

Bottom line – Make sure you are locking shields with other men seeking the same goals you are seeking.  Don’t try and go it alone!  You aren’t meant to do it alone.  Growth is a team sport.
