The “M” and the 2.0
As men, we do a lot of things for ourselves. We are kings of our own island. It is easy to take care of yourself, right! Well, sometimes. Getting in shape, staying in shape, bettering yourself isn’t always easy. However, we aren’t only doing this for ourselves.
Every man has someone that is important to him and He is important to someone. We can start some sort of exercise routine or diet trying to look better or feel better. The great thing about F3 is that it pushes you to think about someone other than yourself. It starts with that PAX right next to you or the SIX in the rear. You soon begin to realize that this is impacting others as well.
You are about to get ready for bed and you lay your F3 clothes out for the next morning. You choose a healthier snack from the pantry, you encourage your kids when they are struggling, you call friends that you haven’t spoken to in a while, you wrestle on the floor, you pray more or attend church more often. All of these thing and countless more are being witnessed by those that are the most import to you. Your “M” is the “Most” important person in the world to you. That could be your, wife, your finance, your mom, etc. Your 2.0 is that little version of yourself that you are raising to be even better than you are. Your sphere of influence is directly affected when you begin to better yourself.
My 2.0s always asked me about my F3 workouts and seemed really impressed that I can get up that early. They got to witness first hand what we do every week when we all attended kid’s day at the Vulcan. Scam Q’d a 2.0 workout that my kids still talk about. They got to see us interact with one another as men, they got to experience huddle prayer and feel the power of the Holy Spirit when we all gather together. These, are the things I want to impact the people that mean the most to me. There is too much in this world trying to grab their attention. Let’s all be THE EXAMPLE in their lives. Live as though someone is watching you, because they are! Be the HIM you were called to be.
