Several years ago we had a running joke in our company. It all began with a cowboy looking guy air freshener (Not John Wayne but hey he’s a man’s man). The freshener would show up in unusual places, and if you got stuck with “Stetson,” the joke was on you.
Years ago Stetson disappeared, and the fun was all over and done. We had a good time with Stetson, and it still makes us laugh.
It seems manliness has gone out of style today with the whole “toxic” masculinity thing you know…
As a Christian I can tell you, it’s still okay to be a man. To celebrate what God has done. He did create us male and female after all. No in between, no fluidity, no confusion. It’s straight up fact. XX or XY.
If you are a man, celebrate being a man. Stand up and act like a man. If you are a woman, celebrate being a woman and don’t be afraid to be feminine.
God’s design is pure and straightforward.
Men, be men by taking care of your family. Protect your wife from harm, nurture and raise your children. Teach your children about God from the Bible. You are commanded to do so. Cry when you must, fight when you need to.
Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
