Guys vs. Men


Are you a guy or a man? Maybe you didn’t even know there was a difference. But the difference between the two impacts how the world sees you. Here are a few examples to help you discover where you stand.

Guys avoid confrontation and overlook wrongdoing. Men directly confront misconduct.

Guys send a text asking if she wants to hang out. Men call and ask her on a date.

Guys say yes to everything that sounds fun, but rarely follow through. Men can be counted on to keep the few commitments that they make.

Guys get drunk, look at pornography, make excuses, are chronically unprepared, and think marriage should be 50/50.

Men resist short-term pleasures that bring long-term problems, they take personal responsibility and are prepared for the worst, and in their marriage they give 100% - not 50 – and they don’t keep track of her numbers at all.

Our country doesn’t need more guys in skinny jeans acting too cool to need any help. We need men who are proud of their strengths yet honest about their weaknesses, who have the dependability and sobriety to help others, and who can actually fit their keys in their jean pockets.
