This Man

How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your Word.

– Psalm 119:9 (ESV)

 

I knew a young man

who loved Jesus

 

He sought to ground his life

on biblical truth

 

He was unique from others,

different from those who followed the crowd

 

A young man to be respected

because of his integrity

 

So I married this young man

 

He wasn’t perfect

but was set apart

 

Grounded

Honest

Kind

Faithful

 

A man after God’s heart

 

Every morning I would find him

with his breakfast and his Bible

 

And when we had our first child

a son to call our own

 

I was grateful that my man was a man

my boy could be proud of

 

and was a support to the boys

who didn’t have that example

 

As our young boy grew to be a young man

I saw in him his father

 

Grounded

Honest

Kind

Faithful

 

Every morning he had seen his dad

breakfast and Bible before him

 

It made an impression

 

For that had been

and would continue to be

the foundation of my man’s day

 

The foundation of his life

 

Living according to God’s Word

 

How does a young man

and his dad keep their way pure?

 

By living according to God’s Word

…do everything you can to present yourself to God as a man who is fully genuine, a worker unashamed of your mission, a guide capable of leading others along the correct path defined by the word of truth.

– 2 Timothy 2:15 (VOICE)
