DEVIANT: What A True Man Does.
I’ll tell you what a true man does:
A true man isn’t concerned with the fleeting or non-sensical.
A true man loves his God.
A true man rests in the joy that he is known and loved by a God who will never ever leave or forsake him.
A true man understands his calling in life.
A true man isn’t worried about speaking the truth, in love.
A true man thinks sex isn’t about gratifying yourself right here and now, but about a ridiculously close intimacy with your wife that none can match.
A true man also knows that discipline and fortitude are true characteristics of himself. A weak man will seek instant gratification.
A true man believes that he can change the world.
A true man thinks highly of all women, not just those he’s pursuing.
A true man is not bigoted or racist, but rather loves as Jesus loved.
A true man is a servant and will work hard for the glory of God.
A true man is sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
A true man commits to devotion in his relationships––with his God or otherwise.
A true man is mentally pure.
A true man leads by example.
We are deviants. We deviate from the world’s standards, because we know there is something better.
[Editor's Note: I began by writing about how a true man really isn't concerned with the fleeting or non-sensical. Then I realized, "Holy cow, there's alot more than this." As such, I felt compelled to assemble this list. It would be a great joy to me if I was able to expound on each of these topics; we'll see.]
