“Then Barak said to her [Deborah], ‘If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go.’ She said, ‘I will surely go with you; nevertheless, the honor shall not be yours…” (Judg. 4:8-9)
The problem was not that Deborah was too strong, it was that Barak was too weak. Men who want power without courage and sacrifice are paper tigers. We don’t need more men that call themselves leaders but won’t lead.
God’s picture of male leadership is selfless and honorable. It is willing to die for others, lead through example, pick up the cares of others, and deprive itself of comforts. God’s men don’t sit on the couch in their pajamas eating Cheetos and playing Call of Duty – they are called to duty.
God’s men are the first ones into the fire and last ones off the ship.
