“The harder the conflict, the greater the triumph.”



“The harder the conflict, the greater the triumph.”

– George Washington

14 PAX heard the patriotic call of Presidents Past this morning.  Everyone else decided that posting in fog and damp conditions is tougher than Washington crossing the Delaware River in December and stayed home.

MOLESKIN:

Foggy morning today.  Not sure if the fog or the moist ground kept people home today but you missed a great morning if you fart sacked.  The campus was quiet, no traffic, and diesel fume free.

Shake, Mad Dog, and Chicken Little were looking strong out there today.  Everyone else pushed, did the reps, and followed through today.  And following through is what matters on a day like this.  Excellent work men.

Cradle to Grave, I took everyone out and touched on something we discussed in church yesterday:

Ephesians 5:25 says, “Husbands love your wives…”. Husbands are to love their wives so much that she will never go looking anywhere else. This type of love is a choice for the man. Christ loved the church so much that He gave His life for it.

Men are called to care for the spiritual health of their wives. Unfortunately, too often the women are more concerned about the spiritual maturity of their husbands. Men demonstrate Christ in their leadership.

God wants to use you for the sake of the gospel. Your marriage matters! If you are struggling, get help! God can rebuild anything!

I challenged the pax do these things each day this week with their wives:

  1. Ask, “Is there anything I can do for you today?”
  2. Pray each day that God would show you practical ways to love, nourish, and cherish her.
  3. Text her once/day “I love you because…”

Thank you for the opportunity to lead today.
