In the company of women, we simply don’t discuss the things we need to deal with as men, nor are our wives able to identify with most of the struggles we wrestle with.
Men who meet together regularly with the intention of spiritual growth often become accustomed to stepping into the hard spaces of one another’s lives. They become so connected that no subject is taboo, especially if one of them is struggling with something. These men conduct spiritual business, study God’s Word for advice they can trust, share their weaknesses with one another, pray for each other, and hold each other accountable to live as God’s men.
Men do not become men in the company of women. It’s simply the way God create us. Men become men in the company of men.
