Be a man!
1 Kings 2:1-2 (KJB) Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying, 2 I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man.
King David spoke to his son Solomon in his old age as he was nearing death urging Solomon to be a man!
True men seem to be in short supply these days as many are choosing the way of the world by becoming soft and girlish, or effeminate, rather than masculine and manly. Every person was born with both an innate desire and a responsibility for having a personal relationship with God. He desires every person will both mature spiritually and physically in the image of God.
David is passing the spiritual baton and imploring his son Solomon to do just that, become a man!
This the job of all fathers today to be a man. A godly man who teaches his children about God and encourage his sons to become godly men and his daughters to become godly ladies. There is no other way to live responsible in this world than to become what God has intended for you to be. If fathers would step up to the plate God placed before them this world would be a different place!
Fathers step up to the plate and be a man, rather than a soft and worldly wimp. Inspire your children to be godly men and women who are proper and productive in this society and who desire to live forever in the eternal realm in sweet fellowship with God.
