Lead, Men. Lead!

Scripture Portion

Nahum 3.10, 13, 18
10 Yet she became an exile;
she went into captivity
her infants were dashed in piece
at the head of every street
for her honored men lots were cast
and all her great men were bound in chains.
13 Behold, your troop
are women in your midst.
The gates of your land
are wide open to your enemies;
fire had devoured your bars.
18 Your shepherds are asleep,
O king of Assyria;
your nobles slumber.
Your people are scattered on the mountains
with none to gather them. (ESV)

Quote from Reading

“Family shepherds must see the spiritual leadership of their families as their God-given duty. This is not a program! This is the responsibility God has laid at the doorstep of every man who carries the title father. Those who neglect the spiritual welfare of their families are therefore derelict in their duties in the same way a hired hand would be if he were caught sleeping on the job.” Baucham, Voddie, Family Shepherds: Calling and Equipping Men to Lead Their Homes, Crossway: Wheaton, 2011, pg. 76

Provocative Language

“My heart aches for a place I’ve never been
My soul it longs for somebody I’ve never seen
I feel you calling from somewhere within
You made a promise and You’re coming back again.”
     – from, “One Day”, song by Jonathan Ogden
