In a recent FB post an associate wrote “Real Men are not violent”
But this overlooks a fundamental issue in family violence, there is more than just violence involved.
What we need to be saying is Real Men don’t use power and control to rule over their spouse and kids.
Here is an alternative thought about a positive approach by men.
Real Men fulfill the “Love Chapter”
“Love is patient,
love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
Love never fails. …”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV
