Tenets of a Respectable Man!

God adored man when He created man. He was proud to call Adam His own and that was evident in how He provided for Adam in the Garden of Eden. He loved man so much, He saw Adam was lonely within and so He gave him a counterpart – Eve.
A Leader.
Man was created to lead which meant man was given authority. This must not be expressed in a demeaning and aggressive manner but a respectful and LOVING way. Accordingly, the man must make the decisions in the household. It is therefore important that man gets his guidance from God!
Fearless.
Man is the protector! Man must have no fear for the world not even of death! The only fear a man must express, is the one for God! The man must provide security for his wife and children.
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.
Faithful.
Solomon was the wisest man ever lived and within all that, he almost missed God simply by the many wives and concubines he had. Man is limited resource and with that being said, man wasn’t

designed to have thousands of women but ONE!

Genesis 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.


Provider.
The man must make it his responsibility to ensure his family is fed which means he provides.
Honors God.
God created man for man to come to him when in need of everything including guidance. This is the true worship – when man can be humble before God but fearless before the world.
