Building Up Men

Building Up Men

The bible is clear that men and boys require respect. Studies show that a majority of men would choose respect over anything else, including love.

I have not always gotten this right. The more I acted out in fear and flesh, the more I pushed my husband and oldest son away from me. One day I decided that The Lord can certainly be trusted to be my defender (bible tells me so) and where has my faith been??
 Then I officially stepped back from trying to fix them both and stopped focusing on the negative.  

All along it was me that needed fixing. I was a puppet in the enemy's hands and he baited me with every evil thought. When I acted on those bad thoughts and especially when I spoke out what I saw was wrong, I was in agreement with the enemy of my soul, my son, my husband, and my marriage.

Respect begets LOVE. It worked for us. 
Try It, I Dare Ya!!

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:1-4
