Being a Male is Easy – Being a Man is a Decision

Herm Edwards the former NFL coach said That being a male is easy, but being a Man is a decision.

Let that sink in a minute.

I would add my own addendum to that statement. That once you make a decision to be a man, that is only the beginning. Now every decision matters and making a decision like a man takes strength and character.

I have to brag on my 20 year old friend Chandler Moseley. This summer he spent two weeks of his summer vacation  off the coast of Panama (the country) helping small village churches scattered through a series of islands known as San Blas Islands. His interest is in helping these native Indians  and sharing his understanding of who God is and what God is about. As Chandler puts it he is trying to grow the kingdom.

In my opinion he is making the decision a real man makes.  He is not just talking a good game.  He is actively pursuing a higher calling without regard to the cost.  It is an act of humility to pursue the interests of others with your time and your money.  He is demonstrating that he has what it takes to be a man.
