Characteristics of authentic manhood
1) Rejects passivity
We are not just sitting on the sidelines, not doing anything, we are not letting our wives, make all the decisions…passivity looks like…
2) Expects God’s greater reward
We take time out of our day to spend time in his word, we go about our days knowing our days may not be easy, but we push through, give God the glory in all that we do, and praise Him for all he does for us.
3) Accepts responsibility
We take responsibility when we do wrong, we are not placing blame on others, we step into the hard times in life, admit where we are wrong, or where we mess up, move on and learn from it.
4) Leads courageously
We get out of our comfort zone, leading is never easy, for someone like me who doesn’t like being in the forefront, especially leading a mens workout group. But we step into those roles, and lead, even though a lot of times we may be afraid or scared.
The morning, weather wise was a pleasant one, felt a bit warmer than the temp showed, the grass was dry so we stayed there. YHC forgot his speaker, so there was no music to provide something in the background. but we couldnt let that stop us, there was mumble chatter all around, Deep dish did’nt sound like he was enjoying it very much, there was at least one comment about the workout being “stupid” which is fair, but that just made most of us think of Coldplay. the Alligator Merkins around the cones that were set up, was not fun, we switched to lunges, which made the squats that much worse. all the moans and groans from the pax may have been warranted, or it could just be that The Battery is an “older” AO and the Pax that regularly attend there are all on medicaid and Social Security, Never the less we still had to put the work in, Old guys or not. Special thanks to Cooter (who has never hurt anyone) for the AOQ swap. i look forward to being back up there soon.
