Greetings I'm Loving and Living in The United States of America, Peace!

Refresh Manhood

"Oh, Godfather, I don't know what to do..." "You can act like a man! What's the matter with you? Is this how you've turned out? A Hollywood finocchio who cries like a woman?" Johnny Fontane and Vito Corleone

The Gravity of Maturity defines Manhood

No excuses are valid for a man who fails because he is created in the image of God. Your blessings rise above cultural differences. A man's responsibility increases by work but respect his play. Unlike a child's aimlessly running at recess, a man's downtime refreshes an eternal spirit in time. Manhood understands right from wrong as a child does but maturity weights decisions and discerns outcomes. Impetuous clothes do not fit well with a man unless he's defending his family and then sustenance become essential. Still, the offenses towards others are minimized because he's a master of his dominion and he can not be truly happy unless those around him are happy. A man seeks the well being of all and gives others opportunities to excel expecting the best for all while in serving others.

Compare and Contrast Boyhood and Manhood

First, boys must be taught obedience to what's right and how to share with others, if these two lessons are not gained in youth happiness becomes hard to find as a man. By dividing my life into two parts, I could make sense of things better. The first part is that of a child the second part is that of a man. The child part is of equal importance because it is a prerequisite for the second part. The child part is the developmental part. It is elusive but attractive. It is the more beautiful part with boundless energy, fearlessness and high hopes. This is quite a combination, but without caution, these quickly become a boy's kryptonite.

Boyhood is the part of me I had to give up before becoming a man. Boyhood is irresponsible and unable to grasp the true meaning of the consequences of actions. It's underdeveloped and irrational but contains a faith level that usually rests above that of my man part. It first must be taught obedience to what's right and how to share with others, if these lessons are not gained in youth happiness becomes hard to find as a man.

FOUNDATION

Scripture

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect comes, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

I Corinthians 13:9-13

Manhood 101

My manhood is the most excellent part because it gathers years as gray hair. As waters of the streams of life empty into the ocean of experience manhood becomes an unfathomable depth. Like waves crashing into the rocks of a jetty, men seek other avenues and routes courageously using tools found in this life journey. As sojourners on a mission, life demands much of men.

Hey Young World

Walk like a man.
