What is Manhood?

The articulation of manhood is wrong-headed in much of our culture. The man who makes a good living is providing for his wife, but it does not mean he’s a man of character. We’ve seen our share of professionally successful men who abandon their families. The idea of man as strong and powerful may provide protection in its broadest sense, but it’s still not manhood in the biblical sense. In the end, the man who submits to God and His Bride is the most desirable trait and the true definition of manhood. Tim Keller summarizes this well when he wrote: “Men, you’ll never be a good groom to your wife unless you’re first a good bride to Jesus.”
