Kings & Queens,
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” -Proverbs 22:6
These are the times where we need to sit down and ask the little boys and young men out here in the world what will they be when they grow up. Where are they headed 5, 10, 25, 50 years from now? What is it that they want to be? Who will help them towards their goals? In these times where parenthood within a household seems to drastically decrease, it is time to start believing in males who have never been given a fair chance since they were born. The first step is to believe in them, the second step to see to it that they make it…not necessarily to give them a hand-out, but to teach them the ways to successful independence. I ask my elders whenever I get a chance of advice to step-by-step become a great man…& trust me, it’s not easy asking for help…but, sometimes that is the first step to get to where you need to be. It takes initiation to ask for help/advice from those around you, and even more of an effort to listen for direction from the supreme being above & deep within yourself. Not every male will transform into a man, especially if they have not been raised to become one. You can see it around you in modern society everyday. So the next time you see a troubled boy…ask him: Are you ready to become a Man?
