It’s that time. Manschool is ready to resume this Wednesday morning at 6am. We’ve got a great game plan for this year. I feel strongly that this is a message that is timely for the men in our Tribe.
We’re not going to ease into It. Instead, we’re going to hit the ground running. Come prepared with a note book and a pen. Come with a heart to listen to the nudges God sends you during our sessions. Be on the lookout for other men in your midst that need to give Manschool a try. If you feel a man you know needs to be there, ask him. Don’t ignore the nudge.
Clear eyes – we’re going to take a good hard look at the reality of this world and our society and the way many of us are living. Nick talked about some of this in today’s sermon. Joshua 24:15 “If serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourself whom you will serve.” Point is, you’re going to serve something. Will it be money? Prosperity? Social media? Your career? Possessions? Security? Entertainment? Individualism?
You are going to serve something. “but as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
We are also going to be talking some about some realities about life. The wise man goes about his day with the reality that he is taking nothing with him from this life. The reality is, the end is coming for every one of us. It is the 21st century. I’m safe to say that anyone reading this over the age of 30 will not live to see the 22nd century. I’m not. I about to turn 55. Safe to say, I am now assuredly past “mid-life”. My end is closer than my beginning.
I need to have clear eyes about the reality and part of that helps me form the “purpose of my life”. Purpose gives direction. It gives meaning and value to the process of life.
Part of “clear eyes” is finding our purpose. Since “clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” is a football themed statement, check out Dabo Swinney talking about his purpose as a man…
A man living with a clarity of his vision for his life is a man that can live with a full heart. We’ve got a ton of great material to cover and unpack.
I hope you’re looking forward to Manschool. I promise you, we’re going to leave nothing on the field this year. All in.
