What’s your family makeup like? Does Dad lead the home, or is it Mom? There are some jokes out there that men like to tell: “I always get the last word in my family—yes, dear.” Or, “I’m the head of our household, but my wife’s the neck that turns it.” Or, “I wear the pants in our family, but my wife tells me which ones to wear.” Guys, have you ever thought that the only reason that’s the case is because we’re lazy, and they’re picking up the slack for our apathy? We need to be MORE involved in our family’s lives. We can’t be afraid of conflict—we’ve got to be Ephesians 5:23 leaders. If we abandon our responsibility, how will our kids see what God intends for our families?
