2 Corinthians 5:17 – If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation. The old has passed away, the new has come.

There is a difference between shame and guilt. Shame isolates us. Guilt draws us closer to the Father. In Christ we are made new.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Perseverance has been on my mind lately. In some respects I think that word relates to just gritting through hard situations. But lately, I’ve just been trying to persevere through a particular habit I’m trying to work on. The bad habit is just tensing my shoulders in random even non stressful situations. I don’t know why it is happening, but I don’t like it. So how can I persevere in maintaining calm? It takes patience. Patience with myself and acknowledging that I don’t have it all together. That I still have stuff to work on and that I need help. For me, I think about the fruits of the Spirit that I want to see ripening in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, righteousness, and self-control. All these fruits develop and ripen the more I am abiding in the vine of Christ. So whatever thing you are working on to better yourself or to improve things for those around you, be patient with yourself. Persevere in the little things.

3 seemingly unrelated things: My Dad, My Mailbox, and Aristotle.

My Dad. My Dad is a really hard worker, and there were many a day where he was working long hours at a labor intensive job and would come home and put in even more hours of back breaking work on various things around the house to make it so we could live a good life. I’m super grateful and learned more from him and internalized those lessons probably even more than he realizes. For example, I worked all day on a dang mailbox this weekend.

My Mailbox. It seemed like every single step of putting this mailbox together was thwarted in one way or another. Even stuff that used to work kept breaking down and I don’t know why. So I had to problem solve almost every step. And even though I didn’t do it exactly the way my dad would do it, upon reflection, I see a lot of his lessons helping me get the job done and sticking with it until it was finally done.

Aristotle. For all the virtue of my Dad’s work ethic, there were some points where he takes it too far. He still has a hard time turning it off. He often has literal beaver instincts and cannot rest until he’s fix this thing or other and often over fixes it to the Nth degree. That’s why Aristotle comes to mind. He said that ever virtue lies between two vices. There is the vice of slothfulness and then the vice of overworking yourself. There were many times that my Dad lost out on really good family opportunities because he simply couldn’t set aside his work. I find myself slipping into that too. Letting projects so consume me and frustrate me that everyone in the family feels my frustration and can’t have a good time.

I think we all need to take a lesson from these 3 things. 1) perseverance is needed and best learned from those willing to endure suffering with us and for us. 2) use the lessons our parents gave us and pass them down to the benefit of the next generation, even if that means they are simply able to put a mailbox together. 3) find the amount of work and the amount of rest that is appropriate for you, your situation, and your family. Work is important, but it isn’t everything.

Over the last couple of weeks I made my tour of Sweden and Germany. It was a work trip and definitely not a vacation.  Over the 8 days we stayed in 6 different hotels and caught just as many flights.  However, we were fortunate to have a friend and business acquaintance take us on a weekend tour of Stockholm.  One thing really stuck out from my conversation with Andreas.  He had once owned a gym and had competed in several triathlon type events in the past.  He brought up this idea of getting a group of men together and having a workout out at local park.  So of course I began to tell him about F3 and what we do.  Not sure if we are going to have a Sweden launch anytime soon, but I think this speaks volumes to the mission of F3.

In 2015 right after the birth of my second child I was running the greenways on my own, doing merkins, lifting rocks, and other stuff.  I thought, wouldn’t it be great to get some other guys out here and do this same kinda thing.  Anyway, my experience and Andreas experience aren’t unique.  The reason F3 has been successful is because it speaks to something in every man.  What ever that thing is might be hard to describe, but rest assured we’ve found it.
