Becoming a Godly man is really hard! I was talking about this with my friend James today over a Western Bacon cheeseburger, and I realized that there is so much more to becoming a Godly man than meets the eye. You must be disciplined, loving, and active in the things that matter to God. A loving husband and father (if you have kids). You need to be a student and follower of Jesus Christ with the openness to do whatever he asks of you. Courage and strength are traits that Godly men seem to possess. Passion with restraint, and wisdom with zeal are characteristics that embody this Godly man.
I see some of these in my life, while others seem to illude me. I know it's a journey, and I know I have a long way to go. But it's good to know that at least I've started.
- I'm a follower of Jesus, Husband to a beautiful wife, father to an amazing boy, and Pastor to wonderful people. I live in Alameda with my wife Natalie. I love food and have secret aspirations of being a chef. I would also love to live in the mountains some day, and have a closet full of flannels.
