Save the Boys
A boy is the only thing that God can use to make a MAN. – Cal Farley
Why do we do what we do? Do you know why you do what you do? As men, we are sometimes and can I say most of the time clueless on what we are supposed to be doing. I remember asking someone “Why do you do what you do?” and the answer most of the time is I DON’T KNOW. Ask a college guy why he is taking up the course that he chose. Most of the time the answer is I don’t know.
So how do we equip men to know what they need to do. Start them young.
Train them while they are still boys. Don’t wait till they are all grown up before starting. When will the man learn how to handle money? When he earns his first paycheck or the time you give your son his allowance and teach him how to handle it. When will a man know how to treat a woman? When he has his first date or when he is still a boy showing him how to open the door for the lady, to be a gentleman.
Don’t even be surprised when you see Men who still act like they are BOYS. Some times women ( mothers, girlfriends, wives) we even encourage men to remain as boys. I blogged it here. We think Peter Pan is the norm. It is not. We have to start educating the boys.
So I am calling men. Challenging men to take the step of mentoring and teaching boys to be men. Richard Neuhaus said it right:
Millions of children do not know, and will never know what it means to have a father. More poignantly, they do not know anyone who has a father or is a father……
So what do we do? How do we go about it? What if you are already in your 20’s or 30’s or even 40’s. Well it is never too late but you have to act fast. How?
1. By August I will be starting a weekly online blog and coaching on how we can mentor boys to become MEN. I am dubbing it SAVE THE BOYS. If you are interested, just sign up on the sidebar and give your email, so you could be part of my mailing list. The articles and coaching tips I will give you are exclusive only to those who sign on the mailing list.
2. Act Like a Man will start to organize events in the near future to BEEF UP THE MAN. Our heart is to see more men embrace biblical manhood. When you join our mailing list, you will get rewards and perks on Act Like a Man events and talks. Plus you will be the first one to know.
I am really excited about this. Sign up now!!! It is FREE!!!!
