a Biblical thought...
Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect. (1 Timothy 3:2-4)

a Book thought...
The overwhelming testimony of Scripture is that God speaks in specific ways. It is imperative that people respond obediently to what he says. Have you obeyed the last direction he gave you? (p59)
a Dave thought...
At the Ironman event I was involved in last Saturday I enjoyed meeting many international athletes. One of them in particular got my attention as I read his cap "Why do you race?" with the answer below "Competing for Christ". I had a chat with Mike from Hawaii who went on to explain all about the The Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s Mike then explained FCA endurance and their particular ministry to Ironman athletes across the globe and suggested I get involve with IRONPRAYER.

IRONPRAYER is a NON DENOMINATIONAL gathering of athletes, family, and friends for a time of worship, testimonies, and prayer prior to Ironman and other triathlon events around the world. The purpose is to help everyone get their focus from "self" and all that is going on with the event to the source of strength - God and to the needs others as we pray for each other.

The purpose of FCA Endurance is to further FCA’s Vision and Mission of impacting the world for Jesus Christ through athletes living and competing for God’s glory. Whether you do 5K’s for fun, cycle in a local series, or triathlon for a living… if you’re doing it for Christ, we want you on our TEAM! This is why we race:

1. Minister to the Endurance World. We want to tell the Endurance World about the Love of Christ. This is our #1 mission.
2. Unite Christian Endurance Athletes. We want to form a National Team, United in Purpose, Celebrating Our Blessings. The purpose of forming this Team is to strengthen each other spiritually so we all may do a better job of ministering to the endurance sports world.
3. Spread the word about FCA. We want others to know how FCA is changing lives, and help them in their cause.

Just a thought.
