Another Attack on Men
Jennifer Aniston stars in a new and extremely unfortunate movie called "Switch". The premise of the movie:
"Women are realizing more and more that you don't have to settle, they don't have to fiddle with a man to have that child, "They are realizing if it's that time in their life and they want this part, they can do it with or without that. The point of the movie is, what is that which defines family?" Aniston continued. "It isn't necessarily the traditional mother, father, two children and a dog named Spot."
The above movie clip simply shows how utterly wrong she is.
It also shows how important your work is Coaches! We need to form valiant, virtuous, strong young men ... young men who inspire young women instead of this idea of "settling" ...
I just started reading a great book called Theology of His Body/Theology of Her Body by Jason Evert. Here are some great lessons I've learned so far:
The truth of manhood is found in conquering ourselves for the good of others.
Through this full giving of ourselves, we discover why God has made us men.
The closer you get to God, the more you become who He made you to be as a man.
Instead of giving men often resort to taking.
True masculinity requires interior strength ... Strength to serve and sacrifice.
Physical strength points to the deeper reality of our spiritual strength. We toil for a great physique but then are incapable of resisting a tiny temptation?
If a man does not possess interior strength, he is a walking contradiction of what it means to be a man.
If we men lived these truths ... a movie like this would quickly fade into nothingness.
