Danny Stinson wrote a blog asking men the question: What are you fighting for?
What is your cause? What drives you? What gets you up in the morning? What makes your heart come alive? What is God calling you to spend your warrior passions on? Your calling, your battle must come from the Lord.
Maybe you are meant to fight for time with God. Maybe you are meant to fight for your friends. Maybe you are meant to fight for your wife. Maybe you are meant to fight for the truth of what God says about you. Whatever the calling, once you decide to step out, that yearning from deep inside your soul will come alive.
Why do we men love great battle movies? Why do we love to watch Gladiator, Braveheart, 300? Each movie speaks to the warrior inside of us. Each movie stirs our spirits to step off the sideline and into the fight. They give us a taste of the freedom living out how we were created. I don’t want to wander through life anymore. I don’t want to be passive and allow years to pass, and then look back on those years and think to myself, “Oh what could have been.” I want to be a warrior, a fighter everyday of my life.
