Everything men do has a ripple effect. The world cries desperately for responsible men. The core of responsible manhood is intimate relationship with our Creator. Anything less is foolishness.

 One of Our Father’s other children, deeply troubled over a relationship, sought many counselors. Many and varied suggestions and approaches later he was still in a painful place.

 Finally, physically and spiritually depleted, he began requesting of Our Father’s other children, brothers and sisters, one simple thing: “Pray for me”.  Within a short period of time a gleam of light began to appear and break-through began to happen.

 “Pray for me”—the most powerful words we can share with others.

As one of Our Father’s children, I seek to offer good to my brothers and sisters regardless of who they are, where they have been or what they have done. Regretfully, sometimes I miss. Reason: I have allowed doing to precede being.
“Jesus went about doing good”. He was able to do good because he was good, and he was good because his first priority was a genuine relationship with Our Father.
Effective doing is always preceded by genuine being.
