    Take a look at the 'Order of Man' It could be just what you needed.

    Order of Man

     


    I came across an email one day a year or so ago and it read, 'Sovereignty', "The battle for the hearts and minds of men". Yeah, I was instantly intrigued. I read on. It seemed as if it were an autobiography at first but as I continued to read the sole chapter intended to catch my attention, I was hooked. It began to feel like more of an all too familiar tale about what I was going through, what other men I know go through, have been through and may experience in their lifetime. I felt It was not enough or maybe it was too much and then, next maybe out of pure frustration or misunderstanding I left the chapter, the book with only a thought in my mind, 'The Order of Man'. those words should haunt you as much as they haunted me and found me once again. This time with a complete book and a place that I can be free to be as God created me to be with like minded men from areas you may be familiar with or you may not, either way it's worth taking a look.

    A sample of the reads that comes with the Order,

    "It seems that most men in today's society have regressed away from or never found what it means to be a man. Unfortunately, too many men have allowed themselves to become weak and passive in nearly every aspect of life.


    It's happening all the time. Fathers who spend more time on their phone or watching sports rather than playing with their children. Husbands who lust over porn and fantasize about another woman rather than their wives. Men who choose dead-end jobs to escape responsibility for drunken weekends or play Call of Duty with their loser friends.


    It's a shame, but men are nothing more than a passenger in their own life and marriage even in church. They lack leadership, make excuses, and tip-toe around awkwardness to keep everyone happy.


    It's an epidemic of great proportion, but what does it have to do with virtue, and how does it apply to being a man?


    Well, a virtuous man knows the difference between right and wrong behavior. He displays high moral standards in character and righteousness. Even when his actions seem ruthless, they're justifiable. He has accepted the biological disposition of a warrior that he wields to protect the weak and those he loves.


    The truth is, there's a long list of virtues and examples that make a man, and they're certainly not exclusive to men.


    However, there's a core set of virtues that speak directly to a man's heart. These four virtues, when in rhythm with one another, make all the others possible. These were afforded to us by Greek philosophers Aristotle and Plato and studied by the Stoics. They've stood the test of time. They are both their own reward and will ultimately produce abundance in your life.


    Keep in mind, I'm only scratching the surface here. This is meant to give you a general direction and act as a stepping stone for you to take the next step. If this interests you in any way, dig deeper. My gut tells me you'll find a few answers that you've been looking for.


    1. JUSTICE

    This is the righteous man. He is fair in his dealings with others. He understands the difference between selfishness and selflessness.

    2. PRUDENCE

    This is the man of action. He's able to discern the appropriate path forward. He governs himself with reason and makes good choices.

    3. FORTITUDE

    This is the man of courage. He has the willingness to face danger, pain, and uncertainty. He displays bravery in both physical and moral strength.

    4. TEMPERANCE

    This is the man of moderation. He practices self-restraint, forgiveness, humility, and discipline in all areas of life.


    As I suggested, dig deeper and do your research. Start to practice these virtues and implement them into your daily life. Before I go, I'll leave you with these three quotes.


    "No man is free who is not master of himself." -Epictetus

    "Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway." -John Wayne

    "Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one." -Marcus Aurelius

    Now, get after it."
