This week’s speaker was Andy Savage, Teaching Pastor at Highpoint Church. Andy is father to five boys, so he has a front-row seat to the frenetic energy that comes from boys.

He told started his talk with a story about the zip line he built in his back yard for his boys. He shared a story about one day, when one of them was bored, he decided to create a fire with leaves and zip over it. Of course, dad had to try it too, but he didn’t quite take into account the extra physics involved when someone heavier gets on the zip line.

Just this week, his eight-year-old son wanted to go swimming. It’s a house rule at the Savage home that you can never wade into the pool. You always have to jump off the diving board. There is no slowly getting used to the temperature. It was 40 degrees out, but he let his son jump in.

“God gave boys an over abundance of energy. It’s a gift. He gave you all that energy because he”God gave you all that energy. He gave it to you like a gift. He gave you all that energy because he wants you to use your energy for good.”

God wants us to be a blessing for others. Andy shared some ways that we can do that:

  1. Encourage someone with your words. Sometimes energy in our bodies can sometimes turn into words that come out of our mouth. No whining, complaining, or fussing — instead, encourage someone with your words.
  2. Do what you’ve already been told to do with a good attitude. You already know what you need to do. Your parents have told you. The best way to show someone you have a good attitude: smile. “I’ve got this Mom, no problem.” Doing work with a good attitude is the only way to make the work go faster.
  3. Do something good that you don’t have to do. Go out of your way to be a blessing, to serve someone. Be a servant leader.

“Take all that energy and point it in the direction of doing something good.”
