The Middle Children of History

“Man, I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. An entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables — slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy “stuff” we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives…”    Tyler Durden

How succinct. A secular movie quote nails on the head the reality of the Church today.

Men, how many of us are living this reality? Are you still looking for fulfillment in achievement and success? Are you still looking for it in adrenaline and endorphins? Are you still looking for it in acquisition and accumulation? Take it from me, and King Solomon for that matter-“It isn’t worth it.”

Are you a casualty of the spiritual war? Is your soul enduring its great depression?

This is your time, my friends! Each man must “lose his life if he wants to find it.” I challenge you to throw in the towel. Stop shadow-boxing, swinging at nothing. Your Trainer-the One who chose you-wants to strengthen you, hone your skills, trim your fat, and unleash the fighter within you.

What will your defining moment be? Will it be the pinnacle of possessions? Or, will it be the moment you first knock your enemy out of the ring?

Join us.

    Nice post…

    Acknowledge the spiritual war and it will be easier to engage the material war.

    We’ll see you guys Sat morning for training.
