I think I'm like most Christian men in that I feel the responsibility of being the "spiritual leader of my home." The bad news is that I don't have a clear picture of what that means. I usually end up feeling inadequate in many ways. I know that this is what God has for me, but I often live with a deep sense of failure because I simply don't know how to do it.
The new movie "Courageous" opens this weekend. Produced by the same people who made Fireproof and Facing the Giants, this message movie hopes to inspire men to begin to take the first steps toward being the men God has called them to be.
Find where it might be showing in a theater near you by going to the official movie website.
Or you can check out some of the great resources that Focus on the Family has put together on their Courageous Website.
Make plans to see this movie with your spouse. Pray that it would stir in all of us the desire to lead and shepherd our families more effectively.
