The Measure of a Man

The Measure of a Man

The measure of a man is not in what he has, or how much money he has accrued.

The measure of a man is in his willingness to sow into the lives of others without a thought for personal gain. To sow into the lives of others without a thought for personal cost. Anything else is an empty offering.

True giving comes from the heart. It is not weighed up and a measure given, but poured out of a heart immeasurably blessed by the abundance of God's bounty.

The finest men I know are not wealthy in worldly terms but they are rich in their relationship with God and their willingness to share all that they have with others.

By that, and only that, can I understand the measure of a man.

Love you Kirk

I read your blog last night and then again this morning. As I read it I thought about the TRUE men in my life. I think about my own husband, Kirk whom you mentioned, your own husband whom I have had the privilege to get to know with the help of modern technology and of course some of the men here at CB, church, etc. I am blessed to know so many true men...men of God. The world needs more men.

Blessings!
