Grow Up

June 17, 2013

On this Father Day, it’s time to come home to Jesus. Some people reach a certain age, but still want to reflect back on their youth. A man should not take a wife, have children and carry them home to mother. If you can’t provide for a wife, you are not ready to be married.
Some men think it makes them a man by making children. A real man provides and cares for his children after birth. I see middle-age men walking in public with sagging pants. How can you lead and set examples while you are sagging?
One positive example is better than a thousand negative examples. How can a grown man still depend on his mother for food, housing, give him money, pay his traffic violation tickets and provide health care? We have put our children on a crutch, because we want to do everything and fix everything for them. When we are gone, they will be lost. Our young men think success is putting $2,000 worth of rims on a $500 automobile, while neglecting the welfare of their children or shooting and killing each other. Young men does not have a clue on what it mean to fight for justice, stand on their own two feet or believe everything is achievable.
It is more to life than leaving a trail of unsupported children, thumping, low-riding with a 40 ounce, a 9 mm and sagging pants. A real man will take care of his children, carry his family to church, walk respectable before his family and teach values.
Young women are having babies after babies and can’t provide for the one they have. They have become dependent on the welfare to take care of their children. Many are still doing drugs or drinking alcohol while pregnant. Stop trying to find love in the bedroom. You cannot sleep yourself into love. There are too many ways to prevent becoming pregnant and spreading diseases. God had the perfect plan: “Abstain from sex until you are married”. If we follow God plans, we will do well. It’s our plan that gets us into trouble. Because a person is so cute, fine or handsome does not make that person right for you. One of the old songs I listened to was “Take Time to know her (or Him)”. It’s not an overnight thing.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (1 Corinthians 13:11)
