When Does a Boy Become a Man?

I just read this article, and thought you might also enjoy it.  It's a great resource to help guide us as we train up our boys to become men.  Read through it, and evaluate where you are training well already, and where you need to do some additional training.  Pray over your boys in these 13 areas.  And make the list your own by adding other characteristics you see in Scripture and in the godly men around you.

When does a Boy Become a Man
 
 
1. SPIRITUAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO LEAD A WIFE AND CHILDREN.

2. PERSONAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO BE A RESPONSIBLE HUSBAND AND FATHER.

3. ECONOMIC MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO HOLD AN ADULT JOB AND HANDLE MONEY..

4. PHYSICAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO WORK AND PROTECT A FAMILY.

5. SEXUAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO MARRY AND FULFILL GOD'S PURPOSES.

6. MORAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO LEAD AS EXAMPLE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

7. ETHICAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO MAKE RESPONSIBLE DECISIONS.

8. WORLDVIEW MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

9. RELATIONAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT OTHERS.

10. SOCIAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY.

11. VERBAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO COMMUNICATE AND ARTICULATE AS A MAN.

12. CHARACTER MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO DEMONSTRATE COURAGE UNDER FIRE.

13. BIBLICAL MATURITY SUFFICIENT TO LEAD AT SOME LEVEL IN THE CHURCH.
