I've found this to be right with the boys I get to disciple, the one who will knock someone's block off for what they believe will make a great leader someday. He shows more masculinity then the passive boy, always asking to do anything. King David strikes me as one of those men. You are talking crap about my God prepare to meet Him. (Slings rock into Goliaths's head, and does not leave it there, but proceeds to chop his head off with Goliaths own sword, and if that was not enough he takes Goliaths head, and armor back to camp) If we would train more young men like that, we'd see this cowardice in society, schools, and church slowly pass away. We would see young men who would stand up in homes be a father to their kids. I don't know if you all have looked around in Lawrance County; lately, missing fathers' is a huge issue and especially biblical fathers.
Points me to Davids father, Jesse he must have been one of the most fearsome men around because he did not just teach his child to keep the sheep, but protect the sheep as well. David, in his youth, I might add kills a lion and bear, let that sink in for a minute. Where did David learn to wield the weapons of a shepherd his father. Men, we must teach our young men to use the weapons of the great Shepherd Jesus Christ. We must teach young men honor and respect your mother because one day, it will not be their mother; you are honoring but a wife. We must teach our young men that it's okay to be manly; it is okay to want to go to war over biblical issues and even social issues. It is okay to want to stand out of the crowd and say I was born a man, and man I will be. I also do not want you all to get this false masculinity of burping and scratching boys trying to be a man.
Every child at the BBH is let known from the start its good to be a man; in a society that has 7000 plus genders, I must now preference that. In a culture that would say its vogue and hip as a man to come out as a woman and declare God made a mistake. We need more young men being trained by fathers to be like David, always ready to defend, always prepared to repent, and always willing to please and serve God. One of my prayers daily, I will become a better biblical man so that I can teach these men in training to one day honor God as a true biblical man.
