CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My inner nerd came out and I spoke briefly about the life of Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe faced many difficult obstacles throughout his lifetime – grew up extremely poor, suffered from clinical depression, lost multiple children at young ages, lost a U.S. Senate bid to Stephen Douglas in 1858, and many more as president. However, for each specific situation, he fought through the adversity by leaning on his faith, humility, and vulnerability. Every individual in his close circle of trust was aware of his struggles and he was not afraid to communicate his hardships to those closest to him. This is a rare trait that people truly admired about him.

With the past two years being trying times for everyone in their own way, it is important for us to utilize the F3 platform to encourage, support, serve, etc. each other. I challenged everyone to be vulnerable in 2022 and to never be afraid to speak up if there’s anything your fellow PAX can do to help in any way.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

“In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.”

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

  • As I was preparing remarks for my first Q, I went back to my first day in F3 as an FNG and appreciated the infamous “Baby Weight” nickname, which was derived from an embarrassing story of mine. Personally, I think this approach was a great way for me to check my pride at the front door on day one and make myself extremely vulnerable in front of a group of strangers. It was certainly a humbling moment and that’s what I briefly touched on this morning — humility. In my opinion, humility is an extremely important aspect of being a Christian man in this world. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was the poster child for humility. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is from Philippians 2:3-4: “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests but take an interest in others, too.”
  • Also, any time I think of humility, I always think of John Maxwell’s quote: “Around other people, don’t try to be interesting or impressive, but rather be interested and impressed. “
  • It’s really a matter of attitude. The people with charisma, those who attract others to themselves, are individuals who focus on others, not themselves. They ask questions of others. They listen. They don’t try to be the center of attention. And they never try to pretend they’re perfect.
  • I challenged each HIM (including myself) today and every day to die unto yourselves and adopt the humbling attitude of Jesus Christ in all aspects of your life.
