The ultimate measure of a true man is not where he stands in ordinary moments of fun and entertainment but where he stands at the crossroads of life when challenged by controversy of truth, standing up for what is right. The man who chooses to act courageously with strength of integrity in the face of difficult situations and whose priority is to serve and protect the welfare of his loved ones by defending them against all potential harm are true men. A true man will do anything it takes to leave a legacy of blessing to his family. He is willing to demonstrates his willingness to protect his loved ones by always standing up for what is right regardless of the fact that it may cost him to lose prestige, popularity, fame, fortunes, or any such thing that could possibly compromise the principles and convictions he holds true.
The attitude and expression of pursuing genuine man- hood often results in an incredible offense taken by others, especially by those who have decided to live in the perpetual wanderings of spiritual mediocrity. Others may prefer to side-skirt the issue and find it difficult to pursue the true meaning of manhood. These men rather choose an easier road towards a world of leisure and fantasy (non-reality) by holding on to the perpetual state of life long immaturity. However when real life confronts these men and their unrealistic imaginations they only know to respond with childish tantrums, full of fanciful rebellion, like a Peter Pan, refusing to grow up. Soon all men will realize that the pathway toward the full measure and stature of a mature man is to follow Christ and Christ alone.
