Trying to figure out what it means to be a man can be as elusive as trying to figure out what is the “best” car to buy. What does it mean?
Today’s U.S. culture is rather directionless when it comes to informing men on how to be a man. Sure, we have MTV2’s “Guy Code” and the concept of “Bro Code” all over the place (you’re welcome, Barney Stinson, of How I Met Your Mother).
“A bro should never, ever wear Capri pants.”
“A bro should not wear flip flops with a suit.”
These are pretty funny to me. But as humorous as these can be, there is a bigger reality at play: current culture and media and families and churches and individuals often have no real idea what it means to be a man. So the gauntlet has been thrown. Join me as I explore this topic.
