No more excuses.
The ball soars through the air and lands right in the hands of the receiver, yet he drops it and tumbles to the ground. When he gets up, he hobbles to the sidelines limping. He’s not really hurt, he’s just trying to keep the heat off his back. You’ve probably seen this happen time and again as you‘ve watched a game, but is this how you live your life? Do you make excuses when you drop the ball and limp to the sidelines? This is the pattern of far too many men—young, old, and everywhere in between.
Exploring examples of men of God throughout the Bible, this eight-session Bible study dives deeply into the heart of a man and challenges him to stand up, embrace the role God has made him for, live with integrity, love with ferocity, and be the man God has made him to be. And it all begins when we stop making excuses.
