The word “love” is such a powerful word in a man’s life when he truly knows the significance of that one word. Unfortunately, we use the word “love” in our culture very loosely, and then wonder why men (and women) say it with no commitment to back it up.
There are too many boys in our society and not enough men. We’ve all been given male parts, but one thing is true, manhood is not an event, it is a decision, and a daily one at that.
I have much to say about women too, but it actually begins with us men. You see, women by nature are responders, and they will respond to who we are as men. So if you are a great dude in many aspects, and she doesn’t respond to your request after plenty of tries, as well as the lifestyle you offer her, then be thankful. You probably just saved yourself from a major life detour because she inevitability will not appreciate you. Remember she cannot appreciate what she doesn’t truly understand, or is not willing to understand.
Back to speaking to my fellow men, love isn’t for you if you still choose video games over working on your vision, love isn’t for you if you can’t keep a steady job, love isn’t for you if you still want all the benefits of a future marriage yet still live like a bachelor, love isn’t for you if you always want to be right and not learn something new, love isn’t for you if you still want your dreams to magically come true with no plan and effort on your part, love isn’t for you if you still want to be the King but not assume the responsibility of one and lead your domain, love isn’t for you if you lie and have no remorse, love isn’t for you if you think life is all about you.
So gentlemen, love is for you when you are willing to let her eat the last piece of bread when there is no more, love is for you when you are willing to humble yourself and learn to grow and go further, love is for you when you can commit and keep your commitment in spite of how you feel, love is for you when you are willing to lay down your life for her (and your future family) so that she may live, love is for you when excuses are eliminated from your vocabulary and you begin to build a generational legacy for your children’s children. Love is for you the day you decide to stop living for only you.
