Hey, Gabriel Guys!
WOW! What an awesome response to the launch of the Gabriel Guys Blog! Within less than a day from launch, we were already in five countries! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I'd like to welcome those of you from Austria, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and, of course, the USA! Please tell your friends about the Gabriel Guys, and please post a comment. We want to hear from you!
Today we're going to talk about a very critical issue in our day, no matter where you live in the world: the difference between a man and a male.
What? you may be thinking. Aren't they the same?
Not by a long shot.
You see, anyone born of the masculine gender can call himself a male. But not everyone born of the masculine gender can call himself a man.
Now, I'm not talking about natural human development. It's obvious that a baby boy, naturally speaking, is not yet a grown man.
I'm talking about spiritual, moral, psychological, and emotional development.

When we consider these aspects, we will readily see that we have very few real men in the world. Perhaps that is one reason that our world is in such bad shape.
So, what is the difference between a male and a man? Let's take a look:
1-A male seeks to prove his power by his sexual prowess and his brute strength.
A man seeks to prove his power by his spiritual and moral strength.
2-A male makes money his god.
A man makes God his God.
3-A male puts his own needs above the needs of everyone else.
A man puts the needs of his family, his friends, and his wife and children (if he is married)
above his own.
4-A male will use women for his own satisfaction.
A man will respect women and never hurt them in any way.
5-A male will flee from commitment, especially the commitment of marriage.
A man will embrace commitment, especially the commitment of marriage.
Bottom line, nobility of character determines the difference between a male and a man. A male doesn't really care about developing a noble character; a man does.
A Gabriel Guy is a true man. He follows Jesus and models his own life after the life of Christ. A Gabriel Guy uses the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, as his weapon in combatting and overcoming evil.
So, if you want to know what a real man looks like, just look at Jesus.
Now, let's hear from you. What do you think are some other differences between a man and a male?
