I think its one of the things that most Christian men fail at is true outreach to other men. Partly it’s biological and it can’t be argued that is part of this failure. Another part of this failure is that most men come from the mindset that if you don’t ( or didn’t) have a career or a college education you just aren’t like them. For many women adding a new woman to their group is no big deal. To most men that is simply not the case. For the men that are not included in these circles those other men often feel unwelcomed even at churches, they have gone to for decades. There are those ” other” men who practically beg for help to find a men’s bible study from leadership on down and they are simply ignored. You have situations in which a man is facing the toughest challenge in their life and mention that to other men ( including some in leadership) that they can’t go through this alone. ( with a couple of exceptions) Then sadly that is what that ” other” man faces. You have situations that those men are taken off the weekly e-mail list for no reason. Will these situations change? I suspect not. So those “other” men over time just give up and that is truly sad and disappointing.
There are times in life when the electricity in our home goes out. Then panic sets in because we cannot operate those many things that we rely on. Yes for many it’s a nuisance and realizes that the power will come back on. Which leads us to a more interesting question?
What is the true power source in your life? Many believers, they will say that is an easy question to answer. But is it? In a world full of sin we can all easily fall into certain traps that take us away from our true power source. There is only one true power source in all of humanity and that comes from The Lord God Almighty. So where does your power source come from?
Each day is a totally new adventure full of twist and unexpected turns. Yet sometimes the most important part of your being gets left behind. That is taking the time to cleanse your soul at least once a day. For many it’s a daily habit of being in God’s word. On this one I have found that women are much better at it than men. Sorry guys we have a tendency to let that part slide some. I am not claiming that finding the time each day is easy because for many it is not. It does back to one basic concept and that is how you spent those 24 hours you have each day!
