Hot Damn! I’m sorry y’all- Well Not really. I’m not going to apologize for truly feeling these truly talented brothers. They are real musicians, real writers, and their songs resonated volume of soul and substance.
Somthing that I hope will one day be said about my writing and my art pieces, as that is what I put into each and every creation. I’m here today writing about what Stockley (the Lead singer) sang about….Oh! and what these videos talk about………..A GOOD MAN, & What type of man would I be if I were not a good man. I’m not gon lie…..I took the long road finding my way to becoming my definition of this good man. I have witnessed many examples both good and bad, and I emulated those that I wanted to be like and learned even more from those that I did not want to replicate. I am only a good man, not this perfect man, which only means that I can become a better man. I plan on doing just that because the person whom God Blessed me with deserves nothing less than my absolute best.
and every day I try to give her and become just that.
The other day I and one of my good friends were outside talking about relationships and the subject of a good man. We got knee deep in conversation when someone mentioned-not only a good man but a responsible man. That got me to thinking (you know how I am). I have been married more than a couple of decades and have made my mistakes along the way, so I felt like I could honestly put my two cents/dollar in…..
what is a good man, and what is a responsible man?
A responsible man?
First, manhood is firmly rooted in training and discipline.
One may be male by birth, but becoming a man is a journey which a male must make in order to realize, not only his full potential but to become a benefit to his home, church, community and general society in general.
Manhood, also requires an unwavering loyalty to the truth, regardless of public opinion, personal thought, family critiques, or historical revisionists.
My sole purpose with this piece is to help men become better, instead of bitter……
So my brothers and my sisters (please pass this on to that brother) what are you?
Are you Man or a Male?
1. A man does not carry a grudge. A male looks for ways to get even.
2. A man takes every opportunity to better himself. A male complains that he has to stay where he is.
3. A man gives to his community. A male takes from his community.
4. A man is measured by his character. A male is measured by his sex drive.
5. A man is a protector of women in general and committed to one woman in particular.
A male views women as chattel, and is not committed to any one woman.
6. A man is secure in his Manhood and is striving to help other Men realize that same security.
A male is not secure in his Manhood and uses the gun, knife, club or pipe to tear down other individuals.
7. A man has established a firm relationship with God, church, and other godly men.
A male uses the church for his own gain, shuns godly counsel and training, and seeks God only when trouble comes.
I spoke on it and I am left only to ask one mo gin…Are you a man, striving to be a man, or are you a male?
Holla at me…
