You and I, our peers, and our kids, have been marinated in a fully saturated consumer culture. How has that consumer culture impacted you? There’s a radical paradigm shift that God offers us that will dramatically change our relationships and lives. It’s based in God’s agape love and lifts others by investing in rather than consuming from others. Let’s ask ourselves if we can define and deliver love?“ Tip, love’s opposite is selfishness and love pays a price to do what’s best for another person. Jesus is the model and the power source for being the relationship investor God made us to be. His love needs to be received to be delivered and it includes counter-cultural concepts like choosing exclusivity and sacrificial serving. God’s paradigm creates marriage hope for the single and scared, and for the married and scarred. The same paradigm will revolutionize our fathering. To thrive as men we’re going to need Jesus’ way to beat life’s blitzes, like the secrecy and lying that detonate bombs when we get sex outside of God’s celebrated design. In the end, our best life as a man comes signing over the title deed so that we are owned and controlled by the best owner, our loving Heavenly Father.
