In a culture that tries to blur the God-designed differences between women and men, the question above isn’t as easy to answer as we might think. Christians might disagree with non-Christians, Baptists might disagree with Catholics, men might disagree with women.
Take a look at this link. In about 1 minute Doug Wilson gives as succinct an answer as I’ve ever heard. Is he right? How would you respond differently?
My greatest joy in life is my family. I know, that sounds like the comment you’re supposed to make as a man and father. All I can say is I literally shake my head in wonder at the family I have: my wife Beryl; my daughter Barclay and son-in-law Vince, their four daughters, Bella, Brynn, Brooke and Blake; my son Alec, my son Conor and daughter-in-law Bonnie, their daughter Gemma and son Calvin. Every one of them is a genuine gift. Beyond that, I have a calling that I live out through Peregrine Ministries. It is to help men: Understand their identity in Christ, Embrace their role as men, and Live out their God-given calling in life. Bottom line is I’m convinced men matter and I want to help them live life on purpose.
