For several weeks I have been posting about praying for husbands to be in God’s will as they represent Christ in the families and to the world.
Today we are going to be focusing on something that godly husbands experience ….
Sometimes we think that peer pressure only affects youth; NOT SO!
Men face peer pressure, sometimes more than we realize as women.
Men who are gentle, kind, respectful to their wives, loving to their family and are not dictatorial tyrants (strong description, huh?) are looked down upon.
Once, a young man passed my husband and said, “You know you’re a soft man.”
That’s how men who choose to treat their families as Christ desires them to are pictured- as soft, weak men, who are shameful representations of what “real” men should be.
This is something that can hit men hard- VERY HARD.
And unfortunately some men break under this pressure, especially if that pressure comes from within the church. But godly men are to be the ones who are to stand up and stand out so that people would be able to see their example and follow it.
Then the world will see that true strength does not come by force, control, dictating…
So today, let us uplift godly husbands before The Lord, that they might stand firm, strong and unswerving in their commitment to being like Christ in how they fulfill their role as head of their families.
