Dynamic Men

Dynamic Men

            In Genesis 47:6 we read that Pharaoh said to Joseph “If thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle” It’s interesting that this is the only place in the Bible that the word “activity” is used.  It means force.  I have chosen the word “dynamic.” Apparently Pharaoh couldn’t find any of his men who were willing to take care of his cattle.  He was willing to entrust his herds to the men of Israel, if any were willing.

We need dynamic men.  On the part of all of us there is too much of a tendency to be lazy.  We prefer to let someone else do the work.  There is work that needs to be done.  We need to do our part.  We need to be one of God’s dynamic men.  Who are they?  What do they look like?  To be one of God’s men it is essential that we be saved and surrendered to God.   “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:    And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might”  (Deuteronomy 6:4).

Dynamic men are willing and eager to develop their God given abilities.  It’s best if they start when they are young.  Teenagers do themselves great harm by neglecting to study when they can.  Our education gives us a framework on which we can build all our lives.  It takes effort to study and learn skills.  Without education it will be difficult to be a dynamic man.

Dynamic men stand out.  They get things done.  They are successful.  They dedicate themselves to their work.  They leave a legacy in their children and by their example.

Dynamic men love their wives and their children.  They are willing to make sacrifices for the well being of their families.  They take seriously the education of their children.  Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says  “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:  And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”  He doesn’t entrust the education of his children to teachers who reject biblical truth.  He knows that bringing up his children “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephisians 6:4) is just as important as providing food and raiment for them.

Dynamic men have character.  They are men with integrity and convictions.  They are not easily moved from the right way.  They are men who keep their word.

In Psalm 12:1 David prayed “Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.”  There is a great lack of godly men in our day.  By nature you are a man, but with God’s help you can be something more than just another man.  You can be a dynamic man.  Don’t be content with just being another man.  The world is full of them.  Take your place among the ranks of the dynamic men.
