Intro: Somewhere along the line, a whole generation has dropped the ball on teaching boys how to be men. How did that happen? What are the attributes of a man? What does the Bible say a man is?
Disclaimer: The views and opinions of the Q are his. If you agree, great. If you disagree, great – let’s discuss it.
Thang: Being a man can be summed up in four major categories:
Respect – Eph5:23, 1Sam16:17, Exodus20:12
Protect – John15:13
Responsibility – Prov27:12, Prov22:29, James5:12
Provide – 1Tim5:8
In a survey, women were asked what constitutes a “real man”. A real man is 1. motivated, 2. respects women, 3. leads by example, 4. spends time with his kids, 5. sets goals and goes after them, 6. takes care of financial obligations, 7. is not negatively influenced by his friends, 8. admits when he is wrong, and 9. understands the importance of being faithful. Our wives want a real man. Our communities need real men.
In short, be the man by which our daughters will measure their future husbands.
