To all the guys out there: someone needs to tell you to man up.
But, I want to tell you that being a man has nothing to do with how you look or whether you cook or play football. It doesn’t matter whether you wear pink all the time or camouflage; if your favourite movie stars Bruce Willis or shows on Hallmark; if you do yoga or MMA or ballet.
I can’t believe that adults have to be told this: but the standard for who you are as a man and a human has little or nothing to do with your appearance or interests contrasted with the traditions of the culture in which you were raised. Don’t listen to the voices tugging on your identity in different directions if they limit your effectiveness in loving God and your neighbor. Brothers, true manliness is power under control. Exhibit self-control. Be a man.
