5 Seasons in a Man's Life

I recently heard Dennis Rainey give this talk on "Steps to Godly Manhood". He identified 5.
1. Boyhood
2. Adolescence
3. Manhood
Rejects Passivity
Accepts Responsibility
Leads Courageously
Loves Sacrificially
4. Mentor
5. Patriarch
I am without question in the "Mentor" season of my life. I love it. I love helping the next generation of leaders become the men, husbands, fathers and servant leaders that God has called them to be. O that there would be more Mentors for young men. I look forward to the days and times of "Patriarch". I love the idea of being a Patriarch over all my family. This inspires me to be a leader worth following with deep and wide "moral authority". In what season are you?
