YHC greeted on a chilly Monday morning by 9 Pax.  After some mumble chatter on the somewhat surprising Bucs big victory over the Chiefs in the Super Bowl we proceeded to get after it!

YHC was looking for a theme and grabbed the Concept of the month from the F3 Jax Newsletter : Accountability.  This was something Airbags had referenced in a previous Q but this is something YHC needs to hear often.  Thanks Jumanj for laying these themes out each month!

Do we love our brothers enough to hold them accountable especially when it’s uncomfortable?

Welcome to the respect category Bada Boom!

Apologies to the Pax for the Tabata malfunctions but we adapted and overcame for a good workout!

We closed with the message of accountability:

Iron sharpens Iron and one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17

“The stronger the guardrails the faster you can drive” Q source

If you surround yourself with HIM’s they will help you stay on the path and not run in the ditch and you should help them.  YHC encouraged PAX to pick up the 500 lbs. phone and call someone to ask for help and offer correction (in a loving and tactful way) as needed.   

Prayers for God’s help in driving accountability for each other to be better husbands, fathers, and leaders in our communities and prayers for knowledge of God’s will for us today and this week and for the power to carry it out!
