A sluggard says, “There’s a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!” As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed. -Proverbs 26:13-14
Men, what lion is blurring your focus?
For me it was laziness. I believed I was a disciplined person. Then I read Proverbs 26 and I knew I was slacking. I needed to get up, go out, and face my lion.
My lion? Sharing about Jesus. And all of the awkwardness, criticism, and judgment it can bring. I much prefer the shadows. They seem safe.
But light does no good hidden under a bowl, so I started by telling three guys around a campfire that I was afraid to evangelize. Not long after I started sharing about Jesus with family, friends, neighbors and other acquaintances. It was one step toward chasing my lion. Overcoming apathy means facing the "lion" of inaction. All of us men have a lion to address and the sooner we do so, the sooner the spiritual impact on those around us.
DO THIS TODAY: Tell someone about the lion you need to face.
