"... a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame." ~ Proverbs 29:15b
America has many problems, but most of these problems could easily be dealt with if the men of America would be loyal enough, to take a stand for manhood. It is tragic that "shame" comes to most homes, especially mothers because men shun their duties at home. Training a child right will take more than a parent teaching a child how to color. Children need a man who is masculine. Masculine does not necessarily mean that the dad have bulging muscles. It has nothing to do with the height or weight of a man. It may not have to do with the job he works at.
David was a shepherd boy, but one with a heart for God. David was not a big man compared to his brothers. But, His brothers, who were in the army, were cowards. They feared Goliath, yet Davis fought Goliath.
The Bible speaks of the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31. This woman is hard to find today. What we need today are some virtuous men. The word "virtue"deals with moral goodness, bravery, trustworthy, committed, abstaining from evil or bad, a quality that sets a good example. A real father will be that man who by example shows his wife, his children, and others that living for God, but he surely can be the one who walks, and lives as an example for them to follow. May God gives us some virtuous men!
As a child of God, you never stand, sit, walk or live alone; you are never alone. You will never face anything alone. Believe that and accept that truth. We are not given the spirit of fear, but we are given the spirit of faith. Alone -- NEVER! He is ALWAYS there. Jesus - What a Precious Saviour and Friend!
