Role model

Once upon a time a lad had a role model in his dad, an uncle, grandpa, the farmer next door, the parson, a blacksmith, etc. Today, too many boys are in a mother-led family or one with a “step-dad.” Consequently too many are finding “role models” in actors, singers, and sports characters some of whom are less than 100% manly and few do man’s labor or create a machine, a building, a farm – they are not worth imitating. (Even some pastors are less masculine than desirable.) If you’re a man and God has arranged life so that a boy is watching you, do all in your power (pray for wisdom) to not fail. We need all our boys to grow up to be men!
