Be strong and show yourself a man. 1 Kings 2:2

Manhood is a glory.

Scripture says a man fights. Neh. 4:14 / 2 Tim. 4:7 / Eph. 6:11-12
It also says he was made in the image of a Builder. Gen. 1:1
For a man...is the image and glory of God..." 1 Cor. 11:7. When was the last time you heard anyone say something like that? For many of us, we’ve grown up in a world that has told us that ‘manhood’ is nothing more than a social construction of selfish men and bad for society. This is a distortion of the truth that it is sin that's bad for manhood. The "sensitive male" paradigms haven't worked. They're stuck in adolescence. They're desperate. They're angry. They're suicidal. They feel like their own society simply doesn’t care about them anymore and now they're worse than they've ever been. Is there hope?

Gentle: The True Woman

The apostle Peter taught women about "the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious." What does God mean by that?

Scripture says a woman mothers children.  Gen. 3:20 / 1 Cor. 11:11-12 / 1 Tim. 2:15

This is why gentleness is so crucial. Gentleness doesn’t infer an absence of strength any more than the call to men to be strong infers an absence of meekness. These two simple words to men and women are the entry points by which men and women embark on the great mystery and wonder that is manhood and womanhood. Obedience is key because neither come naturally to us in our fallen state, and neither are fully comprehensible for they are rooted in eternity and God himself. Like all of God’s creation they are meant to invoke wonder and awe. By calling men to strength, a man’s soul will be enlivened, fortified, and built up in a holy joy. By calling women to gentleness a women’s soul will be enlivened, brightened, and made dazzling with an imperishable beauty.
