A Reason for Honor

A Reason for Honor

My dad taught me to take care of the yard work when I was young. I was instructed how to make straight, overlapping passes across the lawn, how to handle the weed eater along the edges of the yard, and the basics of taking care of the gas mower and weed eater. I was also shown the joy of sipping iced tea from the front porch after a job well done. But, I always hoped the lawnmower would break down beyond my abilities to fix it so I could slough off my duties for the week. 

I'm not sure it's a hard fact in life, but it seems doing something right with the wrong motive produces wrong or incomplete results. The opposite seems true as well: doing something right with the right motive produces right and complete results.

An Open Letter to Exeter

An Open Letter to Exeter

 

Dear Citizens of Exeter,

For the past four years I have seen an amazing degree of positive change come from reviving an age-old concept— honor. My church and I want to see that positive change amplified further this 9/11 at a special service we are calling, We ChooseWe believe this is something you could stand behind! We believe you could be an additional agent of change to see honor restored in Exeter!

Over four years ago my friend, Rusty, was pulled over while test-riding his scooter. Through a lengthy process, that incident sparked a change that has resulted in harvests of Kingdom fruitfulness (and a ticket with a hefty fine:). What began as a humiliating moment became a journey, toward confronting internal prejudices regarding authority figures and identifying a missing ingredient in my life- honor.
