real manhood

“The thing is: Real Manhood means you hallow womanhood. A woman isn’t a toy to amuse your lusts, a thing to aggrandize your ego, a trophy to adorn your manhood. A woman is of your rib, who birthed your rib, who cupped your rib, who is meant to be gently cherished at your rib, at your side.

The culture of boys will be boys — means girls will be garbage and you were made for more than this, Son. Your Dad and I believe boys will be godly and boys will be honoring and boys will be humble.”

-Ann Voskamp {here}

Pondering this afternoon the responsibility it is to raise a real man. God be with us.

    I had read Ann’s post on this, and was bowled over, so well written.

    No pressure. I hope I can model that to him, I don’t always do the best job. Being careful as to what media he ingests will be a good start – it doesn’t depict women and relationships as God would have things.
