Although there are lots of views, hot takes, and controversies about what a healthy, godly man looks like, I hope this is a picture all of us could get behind.
“When a man has a large, loving heart, men go to him as ships to a haven, and feel at peace when they have anchored under the lee of his friendship. Such a man is hearty in private as well as in public; his blood is not cold and fishy, but he is warm as your own fireside. No pride and selfishness chill you when you approach him; he has his doors all open to receive you, and you are at home with him at once. Such men I would persuade you to be, every one of you.”Charles Spurgeon, Lectures to My Students
I want to be a man like this, I want my daughters to marry men like this, I pray my church is filled with men like this, because Jesus is a man like this.
