David looks at Solomon and says, “Take courage and be a man” (1 Kings 2:2 [RNAB]).
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Gen 1:27). There is a difference! Men are not called to be women and vice versa.
we are called to be fully men!
It is Jesus Christ Himself Who reveals to us what it is to be a man. He was a man for others; He gave Himself away. He challenged people, He loved people, He was strong, and He died for others—and He commanded His disciples to do the same.
