Raising children in today's culture is a real challenge, not least for men who have busy careers and lives. But God has entrusted our children to us for a season, and we would do well to lead them to follow Jesus. This message from Deuteronomy 6 equips men to cultivate influence with their children to love God, love people, and walk in the Truth.
God has established marriage to be a shining city on a hill that reflects his glory and illustrates Christ's love for the church. A husband's critical part in that equation is that he lead his wife with love, compassion, and spiritual pace-setting. This message from Ephesians 5 equips men to lead their wives as Christ loves the Church--it's the cornerstone of a great, God-honoring marriage.
God has appointed men to lead their marriages, their families, their churches, and their communities. But how can men lead in these areas if they first cannot lead themselves? God says that "a man who lacks self control is like a city whose walls are broken down" (Proverbs 25:28). This message from Galatians 5 equips men to understand the internal battle with the flesh and how to overcome through the Spirit. This is a vital message for men from all walks of life.
