HCR016: Men as Protectors


In this episode, Tony Rose and I discuss the importance of a man fulfilling the role of protector for his family. Here are some of the points we discuss:
  • God has put in the heart of every man a desire to protect.
  • The story of David calling out Abner (“Are you not a man?”) in 1 Samuel 26 is an illustration every man should know.
  • Man’s responsibility to protect his family started with Adam in Genesis 2.
  • Every man is vulnerable to having an affair with every woman in his workplace unless he guards his heart and is under the LORD’S protection. Those who protect others must be protected themselves!
  • First, we protect our family from false doctrine.
  • A good resource to teach your family good doctrine is Training Hearts, Teaching Minds, by Starr Meade.
  • Second, we protect our children from bad companions.
  • Third, we protect our children from making a lifelong mistake, by marrying badly.
  • Fourth, we protect our wives from carrying more than they can, or should, carry.
  • My book, A Faithful Man, can be found here.
