“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and
terrible day of the Lord comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers
to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I
come and smite the land with a curse.”
– Malachi 4:5-6
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
We all know that there is a crisis of male leadership within our society and within the Church today. The bonds of fatherhood and sonship between men have been corroded by societal change and cultural decay. But we know for certain that God will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. We need only surrender to God’s will to help restore true masculinity and fatherhood into our world.
Take some time in prayer to think about where God is calling you to aid in the great restoration of true, Christian masculinity. Who are the men in your life that you can lead towards Christ and be an example of Christian masculinity for?
