“Small boys become big men through the influence of big men who care about small boys.”
“Don’t wait to make your son a great man —make him a great boy”
The story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) explores the journey to manhood through the lives of three men at different stages in their journey:
THE YOUNGEST SON—the Wildman seeking to push boundaries and find his place in the world.
Establishing place in the world.
Conflict with father.
Separating from mother
Black & White world views.
Wants it All, Now!
IT’S ALL ABOUT STEPPING OUT!!!
WHAT’S THE CHALLENGE FOR US:
In how we respond to our children’s journey.
In reflecting on and be honest about our own journey.
In responding to the high risk behaviour of young men.
