How could men not realize how powerful they are? How could they fail to comprehend their vast and terrible ability to touch the lives of their families for good … or for the unspeakable harm? The hidden Value of Man, Gary Smalley and John Trent
5 You have made them a little lower than the angels
and crowned them with glory and honor.
6 You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet:
7 all flocks and herds,
and the animals of the wild,
8 the birds in the sky,
and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.
9 LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
The verse above says men have been crowned with glory and honor. How many live their lives as if they understand that endowment? Men have been given tremendous power to influence the lives of other people. Future generations are impacted by what they do and don’t do right now. Your wives and children are looking to you for leadership and they can’t be what they are supposed to be if they lack leadership from you.
Every man has serious influence in his family more than any other person or anything in this world. Do men take that responsibility seriously? Those who do, give joy and happiness to people around them those who don’t give misery and sadness to those around them. It’s a choice for every man to take up the responsibility or not to take it up.
The same verse above says that men are rulers and have been given authority on earth. A ruler has tremendous power. Men need to understand and realize that gift and become good stewards of it , coz with enormous power comes huge responsibility.
Men who wisely use this influence can lift up the lives of those in their sphere of influence higher than they could ever be without such men in their lives. When men are involved in the lives of women and children, they bless their lives and make them fruitful.
Women have been deceived that they don’t need a man to be happy. Yes it is true if the man in your life does not embrace the gift of stewardship and be a positive influence in his family. Women are longing for the Man God created and gave the above authority in the above Psalms.
Good men lay their lives down for others, sometimes sacrificing their own ambitions for the benefit of those under their care. They put their interests behind the benefit of others. Good men defend the weak and give honor to those around them. A good man works hard day after day to provide for his family even when he hates what he does for the living. A good man serves others by using his power to lift them up to be more that they could ever be if he were not involved in their lives. He makes their lives better for having being there.
You as a man You matter!, Your life is important! You are significant and valuable! Don’t ever let anyone tell you any different.
However you must be a man who desires to influence positively and be the man man God created you to be.
Women want to see that man come out to make this generation a better and safer place.
I call on every man to ask themselves am I living according to the Man God Created Me to Be?
