Male passivity is a disease. 9.20.11

Male passivity is a disease that robs a man of his purpose while it destroys marriages, ruins families, and spoils legacies. A passive man doesn’t engage; he retreats. He neglects personal responsibility. At it’s core, passivity is cowardice. -Dennis Rainey, Stepping Up

Male passivity is a disease that is destroying lives all over the place. It is sad, but as men we can easily misunderstand and misinterpret trusting God…thinking it as a passive, inactive state. Finding ourselves akward in taking initiative and responsibility for our lives and the lives of those around us. God ordains man with the primary task of taking inititive and dominion, subduing and cultivating their god given realms. This is the overarching purpose God has for the life of a man. Action. My sons flee pasivity in all areas of your life. It is a dangerous thief that will rob you of purpose, destorying the effectiveness of your life. Instead be strong and show yourself a man, taking responsibility for the God ordained task of redeeming and restoring all facets of your life, cultivating them so they look and function more like how God intended them to.
