I recently took a week-long business trip. Wanting to pursue righteousness and leave little room for the indulgence of my sinful nature while away, I made myself accountable to some other men. I talked to my small group and they agreed to support me. Throughout my week I received text messages asking me how I was doing, commitments for continued prayer and encouraging scripture verses. Due to their faithfulness, temptation found very little foothold.
I volunteer with the high school youth and co-lead my small group which consists of guys entering their senior year of high school. It is a privilege to spend time with such fine young men and partner with them in life.
