You reap what you sow. The world tells us to sow our wild oats while we’re young and then settle down later to be responsible men, husbands and fathers. The problem with this is that the bible clearly tells us we will reap what we sow. Is it any wonder that the man who spent his teenage years partying now has a hard time staying away from the same crowd? Or the man who spent his time looking at pornography while young now struggles with this in his life? As fathers this is something we need to be aware of with our children. I want my children to experience life to the fullest – I want them to experience joy, sadness, success, failure, love, heartache, friendship and animosity as they round out to be adults. However, as my oldest child enters his high school years I am increasingly aware of my responsibility as a father to set appropriate guardrails so that my children experience all they can, while not establishing bad habits that they will reap later in life.

Today was Peyton’s last day with the PAX before he relocates to FL. We’re all going to miss him in the gloom! Peyton is a HIM and the Orlando F3 PAX will be better because of him. Tclaps brother!

Forgiveness. Jesus spoke about us forgiving the people that sin against us multiple times. It is included in the Lord’s Prayer and again in the verses right after the Lord’s Prayer. Even the disciples had a difficult time with this commandment. Matthew 6: 14-15, Matthew 18: 21-35. I think our forgiveness is to benefit the wronged more than it is a benefit to the sinner.

Challenge the way you think. Proverbs 23:7 says “as a man thinks in his heart, so he is”. Luke 6:45 says “out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks”. In both of these scriptures, the word heart refers to our mind….how we think about things. Our thoughts are forerunners to our actions. Whatever you allow to happen internally between your ears will eventually develop into your external actions.

I have been in pursuit over many things in my life, girls, laughs, jobs, my wife, and even criminals. And through almost all of those times I was never in a pursuit of God. There were a lot of times when I doubted God, or strayed, or put him on the back burner, but… He was always in pursuit of me. He never gave up on me. He came for me in good times, and carried me through the bad times. He was always there. More importantly when I finally realized what was going on, I didn’t have a long chase to catch God because He had just been waiting for me to stop running. Now the tide has turned, I actively try and pursue a relationship with Him, and you know what? My life has gotten better because of my relationship with Him.

To those of you who are still running, let God catch you, because one way or another He will.

Psalm 139 7-12
