Question of the Day: What Defines You, as a Man?

André-the-giant-princess-bride

Is it your brute strength, your cunning wit, your charm, or something else?

-

Andre the Giant was famous for his size, but people who knew him loved him for his heart. I wish he were around today for us to ask him what he believed defined him, as a man.

How about you? What is it that defines you, as a man?

(Or as a woman, or however you identify)

  1. From the TV Show Sons of Anarchy, I think this really defines what being a man is:

    You reach an age where you realize that being a man isn’t about respect or strength, it’s about being aware of all the things you touch.

    Children face inward, wallow in their own selfish needs.
    Men face out, take action on the needs of others.

  2. Character, fortitude and long suffering. Modesty and humility. A desire to help those less well off. To minister to the vulnerable and suffering. Love the lost. Be a great uncle, brother and son. Blessing others, striving for goodness and well being. Accepting and tolerating others views and beliefs. Contributing to the world about us instead of bleeding for personal gain.
