It was a cold October night. My 13 year old son, Caleb, was being ushered into his young manhood by his 2 Grandfathers, his uncle, a dear friend of the family and me, his father...It was time, time to speak to my son with insperation, yet sincerity. He was leaving his childhood and ready to recieve his commision as a young man. He was sitting directly in front of me as these words were made into reality.

 

As Your Father, I make this Covenant:

 

My Hearts desire is to help you live life to its fullest in Christ and to develop the capability of dealing with the challenges and frustrations of daily living. As your father I understand the responsibility of showing you how to be “tough enough” to live in a world that delivers plenty of tough times. At this moment, I am stepping it up, pressing in to ensure that this next leg of your Journey, Young Manhood, will be taught by your father and close, Godly men, who will surround you and give you insight and teach you Manhood.

Understanding Manhood is  to be passed on from father to son. This is something  that can’t necessarily be taught by your mother, no matter how incredible your mother is, teaching you manhood is my responsibility.

SON:
I will be there for you.

What I mean is I will share in your success and in your failure so we may work through them together. I will share myself, as well as my life’s experiences with you, including my failures– You  need to know that I have not only have had great successes, but I have failed areas and turned out OK.

My purpose as your father is to 1. Partner with your mother and  "play defense" on your behalf—what that means is, your mother and I will work diligently to protect you from immoral and dangerous enticements. But that is not enough. Which brings me to 2. your mother and I will also need to "play offense“. What I mean is, through this next part of you journey I will be training you by instilling in you the importance of a Christ like character. My Mission will be to help you in the transformation you will have from childhood to young manhood. To help you to go from an immature and flighty youngsters into a honest, caring man who will be respectful of women, loyal and faithful in marriage, keeper of commitments, a strong and decisive leader, a good worker, and secure in your masculinity. And of course, the ultimate goal is to give you an understanding of Scripture and a lifelong passion for Jesus Christ. This is, I believe, the most important responsibility for your mother and I,  who have been entrusted with the care and nurturance of children.
