Theme of the Week: Climbing the Mountain of Manhood
Bible Verse: Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24 ESV
Scripture Reading: Matthew 22:16, Philippians 1:6, Matthew 7:24-27
Every mountain climb starts at the trailhead. The trailhead up the mountain of manhood is “protecting integrity”.
In a nutshell, integrity is moral and ethical completeness. It’s one’s character traits fully matured and connected. It’s the complete man. It’s the man in all his strength—without fracture. It’s the unbroken man.
I’ve never heard a strong man who intentionally raised his children to become dishonorable, worthless, lazy, liars, or criminals. Instead, from very early on, strong men train their children to be honorable men of integrity.
Regardless of your race or religion, this is true.
Whether you’re an atheist, agnostic, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Mormon, Hindu, or follower of Jesus, integrity is important. It’s critical. It’s foundational for manhood.
This may sound contrary for some, but it’s true, nonetheless. It’s everything to be respected by one’s peers. You can have everything but without integrity you’ve lost the starting point of manhood.
Integrity is the catalyst in the making of a man.
It’s the trailhead.
