I am going to keep this short and awesome because that’s what men like, right?
poems short sentences.
They like emotions that feel logical. (No. She. Didn’t.) (Yes. I. Did.)
Well, there. Now that I’ve stereotyped all men and possibly lost the few “man-readers” that I have, let me go ahead and say, “HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!”
Though I realize that not every man who is reading this (Are there even men that are still reading this???) is a father, I do know that every man has “fathers” in his life and every man has the opportunity to be a “fatherly example.” And to me, that’s worth celebrating!
Because our world needs good men and good fathers.
Our world needs men that will stand up for Truth and fight for love.
Our world needs men that will protect their families and love their wives.
Our world needs men that will sacrifice, lead, and provide.
Our world needs men that are filled with integrity and humble in their ways.
Our world needs men that will nurture, challenge, and shepherd their children.
Our world needs men that are committed to their duties and faithful to their vows.
Our world needs men that love Jesus.
And our world also needs a bunch of loving, supportive women.
Because our men need gracious and loving women who will come alongside of them and support them in these endeavors.
Not women who are quick to criticize their shortcomings.
Not women who are demanding and filled with unfair, unattainable expectations.
Not women who are fault-finding and fickle.
Not women who are holding a score card over their heads and comparing them to “Joe.”
Not women who will remind them of all their wrongs and all their weaknesses.
Not women who are disrespectful with their words and condemning in their actions.
Not women who expect them to be Jesus, but women who will support them in looking like Jesus.
So, for this month’s “Do-Good-Give-Away,” I want to encourage all of us to do just that.
Let’s be women who support our men!
What am I giving away this month?
I am giving away three copies of Voddie Baucham’s book, Family Shepherds: Calling and Equipping Men to Lead Their Homes.
How can you win?
In the comment section below, share something you admire about a “father” in your life and on Thursday morning (9 AM EST), I will pick three, random winners.
I realize it’s a quick turnaround, but I want you to be able to have these books in hand for Father’s Day!
‘Hooray’ for our fathers and ‘hooray’ to the women who faithfully support them!
Oh, and here’s just a few pictures of my godly, wonderful father…grand-fathering his grandchildren. Thanks for being like Jesus, Dad; I love you.
