Men’s Retreat

Written by Drew on October 19th, 2008

The men of the Ashville Road Church of Christ, where I preach, just attended a Men’s Retreat in Mentone, Alabama.  Our speaker was Dale Jenkins.  We had a wonderful time with Dale and grew from his well-organized, thoughtful lessons.  Here are a just a few of my favorite quotes from Dale’s lessons:

“The world needs men who are leaders.  The first mistake man ever made was that he didn’t lead.”

“You have a right to choose, but you cannot choose the consequences of your choices.”

“Most men between the ages of 35 and 45 start drifting through life because they have no real purpose.  As long as your horizon is expanding, you’re healthy.”

“If you have faith, you don’t have to worry about what you don’t have.  If you’ve got faith, you don’t need anything else, and if you have everything, you don’t need anything.”

“There are three kinds of people in life: excusers, accusers, and choosers.”

“The power in a Christian’s life always comes after testing, not before.”

    It was a very good weekend. Because of the job he did, I remember each of these quotes. Dale was uplifting and challenging. I wish we had at least two of these a year.
