Be Strong and Prove Yourself a Man

Updated on May 8, 2013

Be Strong

When King David lay upon his death bed, he had the noble task of passing his mantle on to his son Solomon. The following final parting words came into his mouth automatically as expressed in 1 Kings 2:2 “I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man….”. How often do we need this piece of advice............?

Do you feel lonely and neglected?

Rise up, Pull yourself together

Be strong and prove yourself a man


Your team lost the contest? Well

Next season calls

Be strong and prove yourself a man



Have you just failed in your examinations?

Worry not. Tomorrow provides a chance

Be strong and prove yourself a man


You’ve lost your life’s savings? Well

At least you are alive and well

Be strong and prove yourself a man



Did you miss out on that promotion?

Next year brings a chance

Be strong and prove yourself a man



Your job just came to a sudden end? Well

Maybe it wasn’t meant for you

Be strong and prove yourself a man



So your girlfriend married another?

Remember, the right one is coming

Be strong and prove yourself a man



You’ve been jilted by your wife? Well

Think, she wasn’t meant to be

Be strong and prove yourself a man



Oh, so she left you? worry not

The beautiful ones are not yet born

Be strong and prove yourself a man



You feel suicidal today? Well

Stop, think for a moment

Be strong and prove yourself a man



Horses provide horsepower

While men give manpower

Be strong and prove yourself a man


Men ought to be strong

The world relies upon their strength

Be strong and prove yourself a man



No wonder

Your mum and wife keep urging you to

Be strong and prove yourself a man

A Lion - Symbol of strength
A Lion - Symbol of strength

    Hi jtyler,

    Thanks for passing by. Ladies too are covered in that men cannot do without women. We tend to use the term "man" in a universal perspective. Do come again

    Nice article. Be strong and prove yourself a man! So many people should follow this motto and stop complaining and being nobody. This can apply to women as well:

    be strong and prove yourself a whoa-man.
