CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“You have heard that the ancients were told, ‘You shall not commit murder ’ and ‘Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘ You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell. Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.”

Matthew 5:21‭-‬24 NASB

Jesus is teaching a more excellent way. It is not just about following the commands, but about the condition of the heart. That’s why if we have something against someone, we need to make it top priority to reconcile. Jesus mentions stopping in the middle of worship to reconcile with a brother. If we allow an issue to fester, it will just get more and more difficult to address.

9 with 2 FNGs at the Project. Welcome Chef Jitsu and FNG to be named (he wanted to keep his distance in the circle due to a previous merlot spill).
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Matthew 6:24‭-‬34 NASB

This is truly one of my favorite passages. As it often happens, when YHC read this yesterday, I picked up on a detail that I had not considered before. Verse 25 begins with “For this reason…” which indicates that something in the previous verse is the reason mentioned. From verse 25 through the end of the chapter, Jesus tells us not to worry about our clothes, our food, or our time. The reason not to worry is that God will take care of us when we put Him first. If we put Him first, “all these things will be added to you”.

MOLESKIN:
It was great to have a couple of young bucks to get us to try to not be outdone. Well done!

7 worked hard today
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC is not a good on-the-fly thinker, but I figured this morning I could share a little summary of some of the reminders that I often need. One of those is being a good example to your children. It is painful to see two spatting children that sound just like you when upset. Remember they are watching you.

The next thing I thought of was the need for fellowship. We get a great resource for fellowship through F3, but we need to take advantage of it. Be courageous and reach out to someone to be that brother you can lean on during hard times. We need those kind of relationships in our lives.

Finally, be ready. The Bible compares Jesus’ return to a thief in the night. We don’t know when He will return, but we need to always be ready. If we have sin in our lives, we need to address it ASAP.
MOLESKIN:
Sign up to Q, so you don’t get punished on JUCOmanjaro!

6 got it done today at the Project. Welcome back Chaco!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.”

Philippians 2:3‭-‬7 NASB

YHC has shared this passage before, but I feel strongly enough about its message to share again. I think this is a passage that we should read daily as a reminder. Think of the impact one can have by thinking of another person as more important than themselves. This could be as simple as letting someone merge infront of you at an on-ramp. Or perhaps wearing a mask despite your own convictions just to make someone else more comfortable. This year YHC has seen so much division associated with COVID-19. I would have thought that Christian’s would have been very willing to accept discomfort for the sake of someone else. I was wrong. Jesus showed us the ultimate example of humility and willingness to give preference to others by giving up His place in Heaven to come to this filthy, sin-covered earth to die. He knew that His death was the only way we would get a chance at paradise in Heaven. Think about this message the next time you encounter an opportunity to comply with someone else’s preference for their sake.

Everyone got through one full round plus a little extra.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Passivity can be both a good and a bad quality. It can be a peace-keeping quality between spouses or other family members. It is a submissive quality when it comes to submitting to the will of God or submitting to a fellow Christian’s preference on a matter of opinion.

“and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;”

1 Peter 2:23 NASB

Passivity is a bad quality if it prevents you from the action that may be necessary. Action is needed when standing up for the truth or when disciplining children. Also, when supporting your M and being the husband God calls us to be. This is something that YHC struggles with. I tend to be passive a lot of the time. I prefer to stay away from confrontation. I have come to realize that this may have stifled my growth as a follower of Christ. So, I challenge all of us to be men of action. Whether that be taking action to stand up for what is right or making an active choice to submit, be men of action.

MOLESKIN:
Reach out to those you haven’t seen in a while.
