Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” (John 21:17, NIV)
Relating on an emotional level can be a huge challenge for men in our culture, especially with other men. We have been led to believe that many feelings, including love and hurt, are female emotions. Men haven’t been trained to deal with strong emotions, but boy do we feel them!
The good news is that we can learn to experience emotions that release our masculinity for good purposes. Building healthy relationships:
- requires the courage to be honest with ourselves.
- provides opportunity to develop our gifts and abilities.
- affirms that our strength is given to us primarily for the benefit of others.
- confronts the lies about masculinity that have ensnared us in selfishness and addictions.
