There is a very dangerous phenomenon and that is the feminization of men. When I say feminization I mean that we are living in a generation where an alarming number boys are growing up in a single-parent household and are being raised by single women. There is a number of unintended consequences for this phenomenon. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (NASB) say "Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Stand firm act like men." This verse is powerful because in this day and age if you tell a young man to act like a man very few of them have a biblical template they can follow. Consequently, if they do not have a role model to follow most men will create their own. This is where things can get very dangerous because, in most cases, these individuals are taking their cues from pop culture and not the Bible. One of the godliest men in the Bible is Boaz out of the book of Ruth. We will glean lessons from his life that all men should follow.
