Pastor Creflo Dollar sat down with Wellington Boone this week to discuss the topic of real manhood and the need for godly men to rise up and become the leaders that God has called them to be.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of homes headed by single mothers has risen from 3 million to 10 million since 1970. Although these statistics only represent U.S. figures, these numbers are similar all over the world.
This is the most fatherless generation this world has ever seen. As a result, we must ask the question, “Men, where are you?” Children need you to stand up and take an active role in your homes, communities, and churches.
God has put men in a very fundamental position. We are the leaders of the household; therefore, it’s up to us to establish the course of this nation beginning with our own families. Marriages are breaking up and children are fatherless because too many men act irresponsibly. All too often, men allow their manhood to be defined by the media, instead of the Word of God, and it’s destroying our families.
For years, society has distorted the definition of manhood. Having certain male body parts defines you as a male, but it does not make you a man. Being a man requires facing the truth about who you are, and changing those things you know need changing. Many of you are great husbands, fathers, and mentors, and for that, we applaud you. However, this article is directed to the men who aren’t living up to their full potential.
The objective in addressing these issues is not to condemn men; instead, we want to encourage them to be real men, not just for their families, churches, and communities, but also for themselves.
If you’re falling short, ask God to help you make the necessary adjustments and get back on track. Recommit yourself to God, and allow Him to guide you into success.
Real men fellowship with God and understand that He is the source of their life. Consider this: God blew His very breath into you. You’ve got His spirit and power inside you, so don’t hide under excuses and negativity. This generation needs you—your families, neighborhoods, and churches need you!
It’s time to take a look within. Will you judge yourself? Are you willing to sacrifice? If not, your children will suffer. God’s design includes the man as the head of the family. Now, is the time for the real man to stand up! Will you be one of them?
