The Best Way to Teach a Boy to Be a Man


Every father wants his son to grow up to be a man.

Every father wants his son to know how to lead his peers well, how to love his wife well, and how to guide his children well. And every father wants his son to know who he is in Christ.

But not every father takes the time or makes the effort to teach his son these things.

The truth is that there is only so much our boys can learn from teachers and books and school. Because when it comes to character building, they need an example. They need a role model. They need someone to look up to. And dads, that’s where you come in. 

Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” As a father, God has given you the responsibility to train up your son. And when you are faithful to teach him these lessons through your words and actions, God will be faithful to guide your son.

So be intentional with your time this week and figure out how you can begin to or continue to raise up your son.
