Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 28, 2020 9:30:00 AM

This is as question I get asked almost invariably, almost every single day.

 

Masterminds! It is the thing that I have been doing for years!

 

I'd like to encourage you that you can do the same thing! You can do it, starting right now! Today!

How To Get Your Wayward Children Back

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 21, 2020 8:47:57 AM

Some of you guys, my heart goes out for you today because you're dealing with children that you have a broken relationship with. You don't have any ties, any connections.

 

Here's what I want you to do today. Reach out to those kids today with maybe a word of encouragement, maybe a hug on them, love on them. Tell them that you love them. I am not saying condone what they've done. We have a lot of kids out there that are knuckleheads that have done the wrong thing.  They've made bad decisions. But let me remind you of something. You made some bad decisions yourself as a child, as a teenager, as a young adult.

 

Don't hold them to a standard that you're not willing to adhere to yourself when you were a younger kid. Let's show some grace. Be the bigger person. What I am saying is there is nothing that they would do that would separate my love and willingness to go out and pursue them. Maybe you need to say "Hey I don't agree with what you're doing but I want you to know that I will spend my last quarter helping you if you're willing to change." Don't love your passbook more than you do your kid. You got to love them back to you not beat them into submission.

How To Keep The Main Thing The Main Thing

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 19, 2020 12:23:56 PM

I want to talk to you about how to keep the main thing the main thing. And I am talking about our relationship with our spouse, our marriage. The number one thing that we've done in our marriage to keep it successful is keeping Christ at the center. Our relentless pursuit of Christ I think has helped us more than anything in our relationship.

I Want To Be Part Of The Solution Not The Problem

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 14, 2020 9:00:00 AM

I like to learn more about today's generation, instead of complaining and comparing them to things how it used to be. I do not like to be the person that complains "today's children are not the way they used to be!". I want to be the encourager. I want to be the thought leader to help take them to the level they want to go.

I'm Sorry, I Killed Your Son!

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 9, 2020 10:29:35 AM

I just walked out of my accountability group and we talked about something important. I want to see if some of you guys want to go along with us in this.

I'm embarrassed to admit that about a month ago I got a speeding ticket. I went to traffic court this past Monday and there was about a three and a half hour class that I had to attend. At the end of the class, there was a about a five-minute video. There was a lady on the video that talked about her son, 16 years old that was killed by a drunk driver. And it really resonated with me because many of you guys know my story. And you've heard my testimony before back in 2001 where a pedestrian walked out in front of me and I ran over and killed the pedestrian. No, it wasn't my fault. I mean, you know he just didn't see me and so clearly, it wasn't my fault.

But when I started thinking through that, my cell phone came to my mind. And I've been guilty in the past of using the cell phone inappropriately. And I’ve texted when I shouldn't have texted or I've answered, a reply or whatever. Whatever, you fill in the blank for you on using your cellphone. But I told that story this morning to my accountability group and we made a commitment to each other: that we were going to put our cell phones in the console. Only maybe answer the phone but no texting, no Facebook, no messaging. No distractions. Here’s the reason I want to issue the challenge to you guys, as well. I don't want to go to a parent someday and look at them and sit down across the table and say, “I'm sorry I killed your son.”

Listen! I know personally, listen to me, I know what that feeling is like to run over and take somebody's life. And if I had been doing something that I shouldn't have been doing, I would have never gotten over it. You don't get over it anyway. Even the accident that I experienced 16 years ago I didn't get over it. God just gave me the grace to be able to deal with it. But if I had to go and sit down in front of a parent and say “hey, I'm sorry I didn't see your son run out in front of me on his bicycle” or whatever, hit a car and take somebody's life as a result of me texting on my phone and being distracted, I know I would never get over that. There's no way you would get over that as well.

So I guess what I'm asking you to do is go along with us in our accountability group and say, “You know what Big A, I'm guilty of that too. I've done that far too long. It's a problem for me as well.”

I'm going to tell you, I started doing this last Monday putting my phone in the console of my car and it's been difficult. I'm just going to be straight up honest with you. So many times I want to pull it out and make that text or reply to somebody or make that call. I'm just not going to do it. It's just not worth the risk. It's the very thing that I talk to you guys all the time.

Let's make intelligent decisions. Let us don't look back and say I'm sorry I won't do it again. But let's look forward and say it's best right. Well I want you to reply, baby, on this thread and say, “You know what, I'm in with you! I'm going to raise my hand. And I'm going to do that. We'll hold each other accountable. We’ll share this, We’ll help.”

We have got to get control of this because each and every day I see people driving off the road they're coming in my lane. A guy almost hit me head on the other day. And when he come over the hill he was on his phone. I saw him. I saw what he was doing.

It's really serious and I want you to hear me more so serious with this than any message that I put out there, anything that I've talked to you about. It's become an epidemic because we're so accustomed to using our cell phones. So I won't beat it in the bushes. I won't harp on you too much. But I want you to reply to this and say, “Hey I'm with you. I'm going to do the same thing.”
