It's an absolute must to have in your life men of character who will challenge you and cause you to - at least - evaluate beyond your sometimes isolated thoughts.Their presence in your life is "PRICELESS."
A couple of days ago I was with Chamar Glenn, a brother in the fight to transform families, when I shared with him a set of circumstances, that I didn't even know existed, that steeped out of my household closet. Just for the sake of those curious minds the misfortune that took shape in my house did not pit me against my wife (no stories of infidelity or anything like that). Although, I knew nothing about the fraudulent act and was surprised by its visit, like Adam in the garden, I had to admit I was complicit in the development of what occurred. What had transpired wasn't my fault, but as the head of my household it was ultimately my responsibility.
Upon hearing about my situation Chamar said, "There seems to be a cloud hovering about the nation." Not sure what he meant, he explained that the cloud represented a spiritual cleansing taken place. Chamar spoke of Jerry Sandusky and Penn State to make his case. He also mentioned Jack Johnson - the former Prince George's County, Maryland County Executive sentenced to seven years in prison for extensive corruption, and he reminded me about the corruption currently shaping the political landscape now rooted in the District of Columbia.
"There seems to be a cloud hovering over the nation."
Blown away by Chamar's insight, I quickly realized my state of affairs wasn't the result of something steeping my closet, but instead it was God busting down the closet door, exposing the mess created in my household. When I learned of the disorder on the previous evening I shared with my wife that I was happy for what had occurred. I knew, without a shadow of a doubt that was an opportunity to right that which was wrong and also understood our wrong had ushered the journey to a spiritual purification. What I never considered, until my conversation with my boy was that our (my wife and I) set of circumstances was a part of the collective spiritual cleansing. I chose to view my situation through the lenses of isolation, but he cleared my distracted vision by helping me see more globally. Chamar, a man, helped me evaluate beyond my isolate thought.
Having the voice of an authentic man who will speak - not just truth - but God's truth into your life is PRICELESS. A man honors the presences and voice of an authentic man - because iron sharpens iron. If you are void the company of an authentic man I suggest that you check your manhood.
