How to Define Manhood


Daily Huddle manhood

Our culture has lots to say about defining manhood.

But today, we’re going to turn to scriptures to see what God has to say. So here are 3 characteristics of a godly man:

  1. Wisdom: Proverbs 24:5 says that “a wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might.” So be sure to pursue wisdom by reading the Bible and surrounding yourself with wise counsel.
  2. Humility: Philippians 2:3 tells us to “do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.” In other words, a godly man must be humble in all circumstances–setting aside his own desires.
  3. Peace: And finally, James 1:19 shares “My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” Being a godly man requires that we are slow to anger. Instead, we should do everything we can to keep peace in our relationships.
