Tip #1: Know What It Means to Be a Man & Do What It Takes To Be One!
TV commercials, radio ads, magazines, and the Internet want you to believe that being a man is defined by how much money you have, how many chicks are into you, how much SWAG you have, or how muscular you are. While it's great to have some of those things as a man, it saddens me to know that probably half of the men out there don't know what it truly means to be a man and furthermore, when they k
new they became a man. That was me.
I hope to clear this up. I Corinthians 13:11 says it this way, "When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways." Does that mean you can't play XBOX when you become a man? No. It means you can't play XBOX when you should be out working or handling your business.
To sum this up and not make this long and drawn out, a man (according to Dr. Robert Lewis and a few of my thoughts):
1. accepts responsibility,
2. leads with courage,
3. is not passive,
4. brings life wherever he goes,
5. makes everyone feel safe when he’s around,
6. does what’s right, no matter the cost AND,
7. expects a greater reward, God’s reward
