Pride

I believe Pride is one of the most difficult challenges men face in our world today.  I see this everyday in may sessions with husbands and fathers.  Everything about our flesh and the world say's be strong, in control, conquer and overcome.  But as strong as God wants us to be as husbands and fathers, He also calls for our humility.  To be humble is to be strong, which seems so contrary to what we know as men.  Remember we are not of this world, and the things of God are not the things of the worlds.  Remember Christ act prior to His death?  He washed the dirty feet of the disciples and said, "For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you (John 13:15-NAS)".   

To be humble husbands and fathers is to walk in a manner worth of Christ calling, and to lead other's in the strength of humility.

Proverbs 29:23 " A man's pride shall bring him low:  but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit."
