www.gbcdecatur.org/sermons/FewGoodMen.html

Ezekiel 22:30 "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."

Prerequisites to being a Good Father:
Being a man, functioning as a man, taking responsibility as a man, thinking like a man, acting like a man, working like a man, all of these are prerequisites to being a good Father!

You will not be a good Father until you are a good Man.
Itís a dying art todayÖthere are not many in our nation anymore.
Thank God we DO have a few good men hereÖwe can always use a few more!


THE MENíS THESAURUS
(men donít always say what they mean) Ė ladies, please allow me to translate for your future benefit:

When a man says ďIT WOULD TAKE TOO LONG TO EXPLAINĒ
He means: "I have no idea how it works"

When a man says "TAKE A BREAK, HONEY. YOU ARE WORKING TOO HARDíí
He means: "I canít hear the game over the vacuum cleaner"

When a man says íTHATíS INTERESTING DEAR.í
He means: "Are you still talking?"

When a man says: "ITíS A GUY THING"
He means: "There is no rational thought pattern connected with this, and you have no chance at all of making it logical"

When a man says "CAN I HELP WITH DINNER"
He means: "Why isnít it ready yet?"

When a man says "UH HUH, SURE HONEY,Ē or ďYES, DEAR"
He means: Absolutely nothing Ė Itís a conditioned response.

When a man says "YOU KNOW HOW BAD MY MEMORY IS."
He means: " I can remember the theme song to ĎHoganís Heroesí, the phone # of the first girl I ever kissed & the vehicle identification numbers of every car I ever owned Ė but yes, I forgot your birthday"

When a man says íOH, DONíT FUSS, I JUST CUT MYSELF. ITíS NO BIG DEAL"
He means: "I have probably severed a limb, but I will bleed to death before I admit Iím hurt, so get over here and help me!"

When a man says íI CANíT FIND IT.íí
He means: "It didnít fall into my outstretched hand, so Iím completely clueless"

When a man says ďI HEARD YOU.Ē
He means: "I havenít the foggiest clue what you just said and I am hoping desperately that I can fake it well enough so that youíll not spend the next 3 days yelling at me."

When a man says "YOU KNOW I COULD NEVER LOVE ANYONE ELSE"
He means: "I am used to the way you yell at me and realize it could be worse."

When a man says "YOU LOOK TERRIFIC!"
He means: "Oh please donít try on one more outfit, weíre late and Iím starving."

When a man says "IíM NOT LOST. I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE WE ARE.íí
He means: "No one will ever see us alive again."

When a man says ďI donít think I can go today.Ē
He means: Shopping is NOT a sport, and no, I am never going to think of it that way.

When a man says, ďI donít remember saying that.Ē
Itís because he means: ďAnything I may have said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all past comments become null and void after 7 days.Ē

When a man says,
