Welcome to the line within us, a podcast, serving Christian men who are hungry to be the leaders. They are predestined to be. I’m your host, Chris Granger. Let’s jump in now guys. This week has been a fun week. We had Kyle Thompson on from undaunted life and we really dug into the area of health specifically Alliance Dan right Proverbs 27, 17 as iron sharpens iron.
So one person sharpens another. Now Kyle’s episode was jam packed. With wisdom with knowledge. And I’ll tell you what, Kyle put a ton of work into building that devotion. So guys, check out the show notes, make sure you go check that out because how to build a golly and manly Fox. It’s something that we can all learn from.
Right. And just real quickly, just to look back on our fun Friday episode here, we walked through what makes a godly man. The two truths we talked about what makes a manly man? And we really talked about Adam Brown and Paul, and second Timothy, we talk about candy. Be both galley. Anyway that he shared a story from Nehemiah and how you really, you know, took people there.
We talked about what is Jesus, a manly man? And that really got us talking around that whole area. You do we even associate Jesus with mailing lists or is it just the lamb all the time? You know what? Jesus was a hundred percent lamb, but a hundred percent. And we need to remember that. Then we talked about what does the foxhole do?
Really men really need a foxhole. And quite frankly, yes, they do. Why? Because Jesus needed a Fox. So he had a Fox. So he headed disciples with him. Right. And then how do you build and maintain it? So those are all areas. Guys, go back, check that episode out because it’s a ton of insight. That’s going to help you grow as a man, as a Christian, because it will tell you what you cannot do this alone.
Satan wants everything around you to crumble. He wants your marriage. He wants your kids. He wants your friendships. He wants your career. He wants all that to fail. So you’re going to run those ANSYS and the cow calls it to 3m friends. When things go down, who are you going to call in the middle of the night?
You know, you should have those gas with no questions, asked they’re up there on the way they’re going to help you. Right. Those that are guys that we need to be talking about here. And those are the guys that you need to be pushing and you need to be pushed by them as well to grow in your walk, because it’s not just a one way street.
You know, iron is not the one iron is sharpening. The other that that’s getting sharpened. So. Right. It’s a constant evolution of friction that makes us stronger because we’re going to need the strength. If we’re going to walk with the Lord and do his work the way that you are predestined to do as. It’s going to take some work guys.
It’s not easy, but if it was easy, anybody would do it. And we all know the really meaningful things in life. Come through those times where it’s hard. That’s where you get strong. You don’t build those muscles up at the gym. You have to dig in. You got to push yourself. All right. So let’s talk about a few tips.
So a health tip, here’s something I’ve thought about just by talking with cow fan again. And schedule workout with them and you know, someone new and you could be the motivation. They need to get started, meet them where they’re at. If they’ve never, you know, went on a run before don’t start off with a 5k, you know, maybe you’d start off walking, but you could be the start of something great in someone’s life.
So just find another man, go out, get out there, shoulder to shoulder, start sweating, do some, do a workout, do a run, lift some weights, whatever it is, but be the start. And like I said, be something to someone new because you need those guys. They need you to be that model now wealth tip. Okay. We’re approaching the end of the month here, guys.
Make sure you have your budget set up and it’s ready for the next month that we’re getting ready to get. Because that’s it. If you’re not intentional about your money, your money is going to control you guys. People who win with money are very intentional about their budgets. They don’t skip this process.
They don’t take it lightly. They lean into their budgets and I can help you with that. The line within us can help you with that because you’re going to build wealth. We’re going to help you build well, but it’s going to take intentionality now. Self tip. Okay. Let’s take you back to this foxhole concept.
I want to talk about how to help you and your marriage with his foxhole concept. The way you do that is you talk to your wife about it. You need her to understand what the foxhole is about, why it’s important. You need to ask her to help you identify the men around you. That could be part of your Fox.
She may have ideas as well, but you’re also going to need her buy-in because if you’ve got to start spending some time with some men and growing to be a better Christian, a stronger man, you’re not going to be able to be at home and you don’t need to have a relationship where, you know, when you need to go out and spend some time with the guys that you’re getting.
Because then you’re not gonna be able to think and focus about that time with them. So it’s very important that you have alignment with her. She is the most important person align with her. Let her know why it’s important to you. Explain your concerns. Maybe you set some boundaries around the foxhole on protected times where, you know, you can’t be engaging because she needs.
As the spiritual leader to house, but have the conversation. So there’s yourself tip had that conversation with your wife. Now, the book of the week, this week, guys. Now Cal talked about several references, but I’m gonna pull this one back up fearless. Okay. This fearless book by Eric. Blim wonderful. It was the number one book in his, uh, Christian book list.
I read it. It is phenomenal. Unbelievable. This man is a true American hero. So go check out the book, fearless, check out the show notes for that. Now dad jokes of the week. We know you guys are liking these. So first dad joke, and I want to hear which one do you like? Number one or number two, number one, Lance.
Isn’t a common name these days, but in medieval times, people use Lance a lot. Come on guys. You know, that was a good one. My wife asked me why I wanted to be cremated. I told her it’s because it’s my last hope for a smoking hot body. So there you go. So number one or number two, Lance, isn’t a common name these days, but in medieval times, people use Lance a lot.
Number two, my wife asked me why I wanted to be cremated. I told her it’s because it is my hope for a smoking hot body. So there you go, guys, let me know which one, which one of those works for you, which one gets a chuckle. The question of the weekend. Are you sharpened enough to sharpen? That’s the question because you really need to be sharp.
You need to be pushing yourself. You need to be thinking about this daily, you know, Cal talks about physical, spiritual, mental resilience. Daily constantly had to be working on those areas of your life because we don’t always have it right. But if we’re always trying to get better, and if we’re helping our brothers around us, get better as Proverbs 27 17 tells us as iron sharpens iron.
