What is it that a young man needs to know about being a man, a husband, and/or a father? I would love to hear from you regarding this question.
For years, I have had conversations with men in which they shared just how inadequate they feel as a man and in other roles as well. Some express great confusion and anger over their relationship (or lack of) with their own fathers. Others feel as if they had very little preparation for knowing how to live as a godly man.
- Some men feel confused regarding their feelings. How is a man supposed to feel? What is a man supposed to do with emotion? What about all of those sexual feelings?
- Some men feel confused regarding marriage. What am I supposed to do as a husband on a daily basis? Why does she often get frustrated with me? How can I make this marriage last?
- Some men feel confused regarding being a parent. How am I supposed to balance marriage, work, church, etc. with being a dad? How can I keep from messing up my children? What am I supposed to do when my young children test me?
What do you think? What does a young man need to know about being a man, a husband, and/or a father?
