Where Are All the MEN?
Rewind: Where are all the MEN? We look around and see a lot of grown boys and even guys. But what about the MEN?
Is there a MAN shortage? I see lots of dudes mowing yards, working a lot, talking and living and breathing sports like an nineteen-year-old with a ball will really matter a year from now. But where are all the MEN?
Sometimes I don’t even see a MAN in my own house, when I work too much or check out when I am supposed to be the most engaged. Or when I am scared of spiders or roaches.
Seriously, is someone abducting all the MEN? Where are the spiritual leaders? The ones who are confident in themselves?
The leaders, where are they? The ones that will take risks, where did they go? Is there a MAN shortage? Did the MAN factory run out of materials?
I’m not talking about ties, church clothes or bank accounts. Nor am I speaking of egos, popularity, followings. I’m talking about real MEN: Guts, integrity, honest, vulnerable, faithful to their family, faithful to their faith, MEN. Where are they?
Our prisons are overcrowded, our schools are strapped for dads and mentors, our cities are dragging in a slow, painful, cultural death. Our churches have Lone Rangers, floating around on their own. Where are all the MEN?
I guess we should do something about it. I guess if we knew we had one day to live, we would act different. I guess we should start BEING MEN and then helping others learn how to be MEN. I guess we shouldn’t just sit around and blog about it, gripe about, wonder about it. I guess we should DO SOMETHING about it. Raise up some MEN who can teach some more MEN who can lead even more MEN.
Are there any MEN out there than will join me? What are YOU going to do about it?? Let’s hear it…. I’d like to challenge you to share this post with some other men.
Are there any women who will join me in praying for men everywhere to STEP UP?? I would also like for you to share this post ladies.
