Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 52

Mature Men

Proverbs 16:25

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Guys love to do guy stuff. Like hunting, fishing, sports, cars, smoking, drinking, telling dirty jokes, looking at women. Guys think that being a mature man involves these things. But really, that’s not what it means to be a mature man. Those things are our natural inclination. Through life, we discover we must often discipline ourselves to deny those natural tendencies in order to accomplish something better. Proverbs 16:25 says, “There is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Taking control of our natural, carnal nature is what being a mature man is all about, my brother.
