One of my favorite commercials this football season has been Miller Light’s “Man Up” campaign. It makes fun of the feminized manhood or metrosexual style of man purses and skinny jeans. I believe we as dads need to hear this message of “Man Up.” Too many dads are content to let their wives lead the family spiritually. We come up with many excuses for running from this responsibility and meanwhile our wives and children are looking to us to lead them.
I am not the biggest fan of contemporary Christian music but Sanctus Real’s song “Lead Me” is my theme song for the year. Below is the story behind the song. The next couple of days I will take time to explain some practical ways that dads can man up and be the leader that our wives and children need.
