Our hopes, dreams, value and personal footprint becomes easily blown away, and thus we become disposable.
KEY TO FOLLOWING JESUS
Pride is not always conscious arrogance. Mostly it’s subconscious self-sufficiency.
It’s when we cease walking in our own strength that we follow Christ.
It’s easy and comfortable to force friendships from acquaintances, but God is calling His army together just as He assembled for King David’s rule.
Of course, jobs and families play a role, but we, men still see ourselves as singular in nature and without a need for close bonds or the intimacy of friendship.
What makes us a good man, or a better man than who we were, is our pursuit of the example of the best man. Our Father is the ultimate alpha male.
This is satan giving us an impossible laundry list of things we can’t do without Christ. We’re looking for a way around Jesus. Focus on Christ, and He’ll take care of the rest.
