What Kind of Man Am I Today?
Take a moment today to watch the following video from the band Sanctus Real. It’s a powerful message that we can all relate to.
Next, watch the following video where Matt Hammitt (lead singer) talks about the story behind the song.
He gets real and honest about the reasons why he wrote it.
Specifically, Matt and his wife open up and talk about resolving conflict, leadership, and fighting for your marriage.
At the end of the “Story Behind…” video, Matt poses the following questions:
What kind of man am I today?
Have I invested in my family emotionally and spiritually the way that God has called me to lead them?
Challenging questions. Ones that certainly prompt me to take a step back and evaluate how I am investing my time and energy. Their struggles in conflict resolution, in particular, resonate with me.
As I think through those questions, I’m reminded that my desire to lead my family is birthed out the way Christ leads me personally.
My heart wants to be willing–willing to demonstrate to them what it looks like to passionately pursue Christ. That needs to be my aim, and leading my wife and children will flow out of that.
