Men! Warriors! Sentinels! Legionnaires! Barbarians!
All of these are titles with a meaning, to be a soldier of the horde, is to be a man that stands up for his, morals, values, and family. It is a charge set forth to us by God and one that should be approached with more seriousness than anything in our lives. There are specific roles that each man must fill, even though the roles are themselves specific, the man is required to fill each of them. Don’t think this is a pick and choose, not that type of thing,
Men are providers. Our tribe (family) depends on us. 1 Timothy 5:8 But if anyone does not provide for his relatives and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. It is our duty to feed, clothe, care for, and meet the needs of our wives and children. This is an area that we seem to lack in our society today but that is another article. This does bring me to a conversation/heated exchange, I had with a guy a little while back. He argued that since he was handicapped and in a wheelchair that he shouldn’t be required to provide. I felt this was a stupid mentality and I expressed this thought. There are so many ways to earn money and provide today that its ridiculous. We all have a skill set or a knowledge that can be sold, write a book, create an e-course something. This may sound cruel but it’s how I feel.
When I was out of work for 3 months in between my last job and this one I literally created a Gmail account and a business called Joe’s Deconstruction. I posted a couple of ads on craigslist for free and created a PayPal account. Within the same week I was tearing someone’s old garden shed down in their backyard. They were so happy with my work that they called me back again to ask if I could repair a vinyl fence that was damaged during a flood. I said yes. I then watched several hours of YouTube videos, went to home depot and spoke to the guy there, bought the parts I needed and the next day I was paid again.
When short on money I landed a job hanging ceiling fans and hooking up the electrical for a dishwasher in a rich lady’s house. There are people that will pay you 50.00 to hang a ceiling fan. I’ve met them. I understand the guy in the wheelchair can’t do this stuff but the point I’m making is there is money everywhere if you’re only willing to go find it. There is no reason a man does not make money. No reason a man can’t provide, yet there are many that do.
My wife’s ex-husband worked 3 different jobs in the 2 years they were together. His longest lasting job being only a few months, and that was when he worked with me. He’s a character for another story but I’ve never met someone before or since that was like him. Mind you there is a reason the marriage lasted only 2 years. A woman needs a man that she can trust to be there for her, to help, and when necessary support her. This too, seems to be fading from our society today.
My best advise for you is to work. Work for yourselves, your families, and their future. Every parent wants their kids to be better than them, to be more successful than them, and guess what, we as parents can help make sure they can do this. This isn’t hard, and this isn’t rocket science. This is just doing what God has commanded us to do. When Adam was kicked out of Eden, God told him he would toil the earth all the days of his life. Working (toiling) all days of our lives is commanded by God. It’s time we, as men, took this seriously. Join the horde and secure your legacy.
