Father's Day 2017
Different facets of pop culture would have us believe that manliness is equated to certain attitudes or behaviors. While there are character traits, interests, qualities, and assumptions that can certainly be associated with males, none of them are what turns a boy into a man. Being athletic, liking sports, wearing pants, and making more money don’t define manhood. When we allow those attributes to determine what it means to be a man, we settle for something less than what God intended. We accept a lie and live an alternative life to the one God designed. You might say that we are getting our ideas about manhood from Adam when we should be getting them from Jesus. Jesus, not Adam, is the best example of authentic manhood.
