Life has seasons. Leave It on the Field identifies them as the four quarters of a man’s life. The first quarter entails self-discovery as men make the transition from adolescence to adulthood. During this time, some men are trying to figure out what it means to be a man and to discern their destiny.
The second quarter is a season of productivity. At this point, most men are finding their way. They are settling into career paths and starting families. And then, there is halftime—a period of introspection as men rediscover themselves, rethink success, and redefine failure.
In the third quarter of a man’s life, he is more deliberate. He knows himself and his purpose. His life is driven by conviction and intentionality. His life has meaning, and he knows his value. The fourth quarter of a man’s life is typically characterized by wisdom and significance. His character is his voice.
The successes and failures of the previous quarters have made him stronger, wiser, and better. The fourth quarter man only fights the good fight because he knows which fights are worth fighting. He continues to keep the faith as he completes his course. He is destined to finish strong and leave it all on the field.
