Acting Like Men – Article

One of my favorite Bible verses is 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 –

13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done in love.

The verses together give us wonderful meaning into what it means to be a man, and that includes a wonderful combination of strength and love.  I found an article on this favorite verse of mine, and it does quite a good job into talking about what it means to act like a man.  It’s definitely worth a read.

Acting Like Men

In our culture there is a real void today when it comes to knowing what it means to be a boy or girl, a man or woman.  Even myself, much of the time I’m at a loss of how to define those things.  It’s so easy to go into stupid gender stereotypes when trying to give those definitions.  I think this article does a good job of giving us what it means to be a man, without getting into the stupid stereotypes.  The focus is on strength and love.  Let us all strive to be men like this!

    It’s curious that love is usually related to feminine behaviors, therefore to be mainly seems to be the opposite, but it is true that Jesus is a great example of how this love is manifested in strength, he loved us so much that he was strong enough to resist such a big humiliation, to carry a heavy cross all the way to the top of hill, so it seems that there is a big correlation between being mainly by love and strength. Jesus was tender with some people but strong with others. I have understood also that to be manly is to be responsable, to be brave, even to be sacrificial for those you love, your wife and your children.
