One of my promises to myself is that I will blog more, but it really takes a special topic to inspire me to write at length. I guess you can say this topic is the precursor to the blog series I’ll be doing in the future.
As it gets closer to my birthday (meaning I’ll be one year older) and as the warmer weather starts to settle in, the two occasions give birth to two subject matters that I’m passionate about: “God’s Glory” and “Real Men“. So I decided to speak briefly to the men about “God’s Glory Being At Stake”.
What do I mean by that? And how could me being one year older and the warm weather incite me to speak about this? It’s simple. As we men get older, it’s in our human nature to reminisce on the past. And if you were anything like me (in my youth), then you swore you were a “ladies man”! Who could spit game at a woman better than you (that means talk to a woman)? NOBODY! Who could get as “casket fresh” as you (that means dress nicer than you)? NOBODY! Who could “stay on that slab” longer than you (that means run the streets)? NOBODY! Sorry, but I had to break those down for my non-slang speaking people.
And when we men begin to reflect, we start to wonder if we still got it. Adding the warm weather to the equation is like pouring gasoline on the fire. And with the increase in Fahrenheit/degrees, it’s inevitable that the women start to show a little skin because they’ve been trapped in those winter clothes for the last few months and their shoulders, arms, legs and freshly polished toes are screaming “let-us-breathe” right?!!
And all of us have been trapped in the house all winter long (dodging those freezing, raining, snowing, cloudy days) so we gotta let our hair down (and the top to our cars too) right?!
Let’s be honest though, it’s not a sin to yearn for warm weather. I’m a southern man, so I always yearn for warm weather. It’s not a sin to let a little skin show either. But, remember this men:
-When that sun is shining bright…
-When that car you’re “whippin'”is clean and sparkling with the top dropped…
-When that cool breeze is feeling oh so good and you’re on that stretch of slab that just seems oh so perfect (no potholes at all)…
-When you finally reach “the spot” and you see that woman that looks oh so beautiful…
REMEMBER YOUR ACTIONS ARE A REFLECTION OF THE GOD YOU CLAIM YOU LOVE…SO, BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR NEXT MOVE, REMEMBER GOD’S GLORY IS AT STAKE!
So put your eyes back in their sockets, get your hormones under control, and approach her with respect and godly intentions.
AND IF YOU’RE A MARRIED MAN, GET YO’ LIFE BOSS! AND GET SOMEWHERE WITH YOUR WIFE AND/OR YOUR FAMILY. REMEMBER GOD’S GLORY IS AT STAKE! REPRESENT HIM ACCORDINGLY.
May God be glorified by your life. In Jesus name.
