Doing more than what’s required.

One of the things that my wife and her father has taught me is to do things better than needed. It use to drive me crazy that they would be so intense on perfection and doing things exactly right or better than what was asked of them. My thought process was just get it done, get it done right, but just get it done and do it quick.

She has taught me to take my time at things when I can and really look at details and how it can be done the best way not just “done”.

Challenge: the next thing you are tasked to do, do it one to two steps better.

Count-off and Name-o-Rama (no FNGs today)

This last week I’ve been home alone while LOML and 2.0 are at a cabin with some other moms and kids of families we’ve known for years. Sometimes it’s nice to have that quiet, but the alone time comes with a certain set of temptations as well. It’s at that time, and others like it, when a man’s character comes through. They say that character is who you are when nobody is looking. Whether that’s when you’re home alone after a long day, at work when the boss is on vacation, or in another city on a business trip, your character comes through.

So where does this character come from? From your heart. Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” And Luke 6:45: “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil.”
So what do we know about the heart of a man? It’s “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. Who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9) On our own the condition of our heart is pretty foul. We need the transformative power of God, as David cried out for in Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Only through dependence on Him can we become the men He has called us to be.

Thanks, everyone, for your patience as I tried to dig around in my shorts for my Weinke. I must find a different way to remember what’s next while my brain has not yet seen my coffee. Maybe less variety? Merkins and Burpees only. I noticed Ratchet learned from La-Z-Boy’s Q a couple weeks ago and pulled the smallest coupons in the group instead of the biggest!

Remember Jesus’s last words on the cross, “IT IS FINISHED” and cling to the power that those word gave humanity. Jesus gave us freedom through his resurrection, which is a freedom that is unlike any that this world has to offer. This freedom provides eternal life in heaven. So as you go out and celebrate the freedom of our country today with your family and friends make sure to remember the true freedom we have in Christ.

Getting to know you
We got to know our CMU and workout partner a little better today.
We interact with people on a daily basis and often times we know nothing about them. Do they have kids? What hobbies do they have? Do they like sports etc.

John 13:34-35
Jesus said: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.””
By showing interest in someone and getting to know them as a brother or sister we are in part doing what Jesus asks. These relationships are important to God. He had a relationship in the very beginning with the father/son/Holy Spirit and was one of the final things he told us while on earth.
So, go connect to someone today and show them love through caring for them and wanting to know more about them.

Moleskin: I saw some of the guys that typically struggle really push hard this morning and are making big strides in their fitness levels. Good chatter this morning considering we were all gasping from the thick humid air.
