What makes a man a man? I guess that depends on whose standard you’re using. Ask the world and ask God and you’ll get two different answers.
Must he be tall to be considered a man? Not according to Zacchaeus! (Luke 19:1-10) Must he be rich to be considered a man? Not according to Peter! (Acts 3:6) Must he have a job with great authority? Not according to Andrew or James! (Matthew 4:18-22) Must he be a graduate of higher learning? Not according to John! (Acts 4:13) Must he be willing to defend his reputation physically? Not according to Jesus! (Matthew 5:38-39)
So what must one be to be a man? He must love God, his family and his neighbor in a way that the world doesn’t measure up to – think you’re man enough for that? EA
“But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.” (1 Timothy 6:11)
