Yesterday for our date night, Christina and I watch 3:10 to Yuma, a movie staring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. Believe it or not, Christina loves Western movies and mobster movies. Yeah, brothers, I am a blessed man!
The movie wasn’t spectacular but it was decent.
I think if you are a father and you have sons, it will hit you more. But there are some key themes in this movie that inspired me – such as sacrifice, courage, integrity, and responsibility. These are all the good things that men in our generation need to learn and to learn it well.
I have been pressing the men in our church to stop being wimpy boys and start learning how to be courageous men. This world is in desperate need of some godly men who will be men of sacrifice, courage, integrity and responsibility. Statistics show that when men fail in their responsibilities, the society starts to breakdown. Just look at our world… do I need to say any more?
It is my prayer that my boys will be raised to make a difference in their generation. I am also spending time discipling some men in our church that will be next generation leaders.
