Men will be boys

"Men will be boys" is a motto of the foolishness of a society that glorifies those men who never grow up. A society that promotes self-centeredness, immaturity, rashness, and irresponsible living. Yes boys will be boys, but men must be men. Titus 2:2 commands the men of the church to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. We are directed to grow in our faith and maturity in Hebrews 6:1; Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance of dead works and of faith toward God. Further, the parameters of our knowledge of good and evil are drawn for us in 1 Corinthians 14:20, Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil be infants, but in your thinking be mature. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Philippians 4:8)

For more to consider, read 1 Corinthians 2:6; Ephesians 4:11-16; and Hebrews 5:12-14. Mine the wells of Scripture, for they are inexhaustible.
