Any man who has been around for over 3.5 decades would probably agree that the birthdays begin to lose their appeal as we get longer in the tooth – unless we’re talking about the birthday Q. Nothing quite like gathering up a few of your brothers, and delivering to them a proper beatdown to show your appreciation for their camaraderie. In all seriousness, I feel better at 41 than I ever have. I’m in reasonable shape, and I feel confident in leading my home, workplace, community, and church. Most importantly, I’ve had the great privilege of getting to know a group of men who are committed to getting better, and know that this is best accomplished together. This is best accomplished with F3. 5 PAX came out to help me celebrate my birthday, and celebrate we did. Here’s what happened.

Devo – Job 8:11 Can reeds flourish where there is no water?
The hypocrite is like a reed, serving God only when it is profitable and/or acceptable. A genuine servant of the Lord, however, flourishes in adversity and discomfort.
