What A Drive

THE SCENE: A desolate park in rural Shelby County, 35F and slightly windy.

Priorities…one of the biggest challenges a man can face. As men, we were made to work, made to provide. Many a time, we prioritize work over everything else including God, family, friendships, etc. At times other things may need to be made a priority such as focusing on time with your kids, bailing out a buddy, etc. I challenge the PAX to focus on putting God first, then your family, and then yourself (that includes work). 1 Timothy 3:5 “For if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how can he care for God’s church?”


PAX put in work on some dark, wet fields.
