It seems these days that men are facing their biggest battle yet. You see it everyday. Media tells guys they're to be one way. Culture says it's another way. What ever happened to being the man that GOD has called you to be? A man of honor? Of strength? Of wisdom?
Recently, I found myself reading the book of Micah, and came across a piece of Scripture that blew me away. It said something like this:
"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God " Micah 6:8
That pretty much sums it up. When I read that verse, I thought about my struggle as a man. I follow Christ to the best of my ability. I seek His face day after day. I may seem like I have it all going on, but I don't. The challenges of a day consist of not looking at a woman with lust, not striving to envy wealth, and to honor and respect those in authority over me.
I recently found myself among a group of godly men that have kept me accountable in my life. This group of guys has become a group that I confide in, and know that they'll encourage me, and will pray for me. Accountability is key! In Ecclesiastes, it says that when we're together in this battle, we can conquer all. It is crucial to have men (or women) in your life that will hold you accountable, whether it be with purity, finances, or other areas of struggles in your life.
I'll leave you guys with this.
"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor..." Romans 10:12
God bless you guys!
