COT/BOM

Some words were spoken about honoring others in your life.

Honor says “Where do I position myself to bring the best out of you,” not “What do I expect you to do for me”. 

“To show honor to someone is grace in action. Be excellent at handing out pockets of grace as people learn and grow, particularly when mistakes happen.”

“Honor is not about a person’s performance but their value in the image of God.”

Keeping it short and sweet so we can spend some time at Dunkin. 

It goes without saying that F3 and specifically this group at Shamrock has been a big part of my life for the past few years. I truly look forward to these terrible workouts because I get to do it with you. Yes I want to be in shape, but more importantly I want to continue building friendships with you guys. Thank you for showing up and please continue to reach out to friends and strangers to invite them here.
