We recorded The Noble Man Podcast Episode 61 from the island of Oahu, HI, so I could talk with 2/3 of the Young men, Tim and Zach. While Ben is doing his internship in West Virginia this summer, Stacy, Hannah, Zach, and I visited Tim, Caroline, and baby Owen. I took advantage of the opportunity to talk with Tim and Zach about the value of having godly peers in your life.
Both Young men prayed for, sought after, and found a group of guys who sticks closer than a brother.
“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
The guys outline the process of finding men that they would forge lasting bonds with and offer two key components in finding the right guys:
Consistency and Intentionality
In a crisis of faith moment, we need to recognize we can’t stand alone. We must make ourselves vulnerable to other guys and see the value in connecting to other men. We need to find others who offer different but strong godly perspectives on what it means to live out faith.
Men, if you think you don’t want anyone to see your weaknesses or know when you need help, it’s a foolish and fleshly way to think.
As you listen, meditate on Proverbs 18:24, and ask yourself, “Do I have those friends who stick closer than a brother?”
