Men and their toys
I know. Children have toys. Men don’t. Or do they? Or, are men in our society allowed to remain children? Look at professional sports. Are these children’s games–men playing as children? Men pretending they have not grown up?
Guns. Is a gun a football or is a football a gun? Men and their toys.
Mothers and daughters must sometimes shake their heads in disbelief. I know, we now have women’s sports. But don’t they play with men’s toys–guns, footballs, and video games?
Who designs our toys? Who designs the games we play? Are women designing the next version of popular video games? I doubt it. So here is the question: “How long will women tolerate men’s refusal to grow up? Women have been so understanding, so patient, but things are really getting out of hand. As a man, I want to say that we as a group need our mothers, wives, grandmothers, and daughters to say enough is enough.
“When I was a child, my speech, my outlook, and my thoughts were all childish. When I grew up, I had finished with childish things.” (Corinthians 13: 10)
It’s time to grow up.
