Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
Hebrews 12:1 ESV
Morning Men of God,
Who is your great cloud of witness? Who are the group of people God has called your life to influence? I meditate on this scripture alot. I start with my kids, then it expands to other people I pray for daily outside of my home.Do you know who I forget? My wife. Sometimes I get in such a flow of doing life with Keisha that I forget that I am supposed to be setting an example for her first. Her and I get in the midst of managing our large family, that my spiritual focus jumps over her, and starts with my kids. Lord please forgive me! Our wives partner with us to raise our kids and manage our household. We should make their spiritual certainty, personal growth, and affectionate needs our first priority. As we are running the race laid out for us, we need to make sure they are seeking God and running their race, right next to us. Our children will have a more stable path to follow, if it is laid by two sets of feet. As we climb the mountain towards our Godly purpose, our wives need our care and attention to make sure they are secure on their path as well. A part of loving our wives like Christ loved the Church is leading them the way Christ led the church, by example.
Love you Guys,
