And we’re back.
I hope you were able to read the passages of scripture from last week’s Real Men Engage, Pt. 1 post. If you have not read it go back and catch up really quickly. We left off last week talking about how men need a new story; one that is already written and won for them. Why is this the case? Because a story that is not written leaves us as the author and fabricator of reality. We are terrible authors – honestly. Left to our own devices humans write a story of selfish ambition, self-understanding and self-choice. This is the recipe for disaster as we stand at the helm of our own personal saga.
There were a few scriptures that I encouraged you to read through, I hope you did (1 Samuel 14:47 – 17:58, Luke 22:39 – 24:12, 2 Cor. 5:21). I want to break down each passage in a way that speaks to men and their desires and tendencies. At the end of this series my hope is to thread a strand between each passage in a way that it relates to the current chapter of life you may be experiencing.
