 What Real Men Do

 By:  Bobbie Jones


             When it comes to human behavior I have been studying it for a long time now, and I am sure most of you out there have done your own fair share behavioral studying as well.  Most of the behavior I come across puzzles me especially the behavior of some young men.

        For example would someone please tell me why young men think it’s the ultimate fashion statement to wear their pants so low that their underwear shows?  Trust me the day will come when all men will discover the true meaning of sagging their pants and believe me they won’t be too happy about it.    – Click on link to watch video below –


            The fake diamond studded earring seems to be another popular fad among young men and old men as well.  I have even seen some toddlers with one ear pierced.  Like I said some human behavior really puzzles me.   Although I might not understand why today’s young men do the things they do my father taught me a long time ago what real men do.

            Now, despite today’s cultural trends real men Respect and Protect women.  Noticed I used those two words together because somewhere along the way these two principles have gotten lost.  No matter what the latest Rap song or video displays it is not cool or cleaver to treat women or young ladies like play toys nor, is it cool to disrespect women with your language or  speech.

            Real men still know the importance of opening a door for a lady or pulling out her chair before she sits down and for real men the importance of being a gentleman over-rules the desire to be “cool.”

        The value of Hard Work is also on the mind or real men.  No matter what the ups and downs of the economy are getting up and getting out to provide for one’s self or family is a valued trait that never goes out of style.  If good paying jobs are scares – volunteering and helping others is always a way to keep busy and help out the community, something that is never lost on real men.   (1. Note – My Bible says if a man does not work he shall not eat.)

            Here is something that has really gotten lost in today’s society, but my dad told me and showed me that real men Take Care of their Children.  It seems every time someone turns around another young woman has been abandoned and left alone to raise her children by herself.  Granted it takes two to tangle but from the speech I hear from young men having “Baby Mamas” all over the place is worn like a badge of honor, but in all reality this behavior shows just how much he disrespects himself.

            You see, a child is a precious gift from God and when you run around creating life and not taking care of that life you have created, you are dishonoring yourself and your offspring.

            The importance of being Loving and Caring is also something real men know and practice.  All the things I talked about above fall under these two words – loving and caring.  When you love someone you respect them and you want to do all that is in your power to protect them as well.  Whatever you have in your possession you want to share with the ones you love and not just material things you share your knowledge and your passion for life.  You also take care of the ones you love with all that is in you – you do your very best to make sure they are provided for and all their basic needs are met.  This is what real men do.

   Finally, real men know the importance of – Having God in their Life.  They know that life is hard and full of challenges and they can’t do it alone and when life gets really hard knowing and respecting that there is a higher power to call on and to tap into makes the rough times just a little more bearable.

            So, if you are a young man and you find yourself running off to the mall to buy that diamond stud to put in your ear so you can pretend you are a so called “pimp” or “player” that’s out and about doing your best to disrespect women, learn something about life before yours comes to an end.  Real men work for their money they don’t sit around waiting for women to bring it to them. 

Notes From the Bible

1.  2 Thessalonians 3: 10 – For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule:  “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.
