I grew up with out a father to lead and guide me through the early years of my life. When I became a follower of Jesus at the age of 22 the Lord impressed upon me that I needed to prepare myself to be a man that, by the grace of God, would make a break with the generational sins of my fathers and lay a new foundation in righteousness for coming generations in my family. The problem was that I had no example. So I asked the Lord to show me where to start, and He in turn gave me Psalm 128 as a guiding passage for my life. From Psalm 128, the Lord gave me 5 key areas of life that a man of God should make his personal study. They are the Word of God, and what it says about work, money, being a husband, father, and a leader.
