THE MAN IN THE FAMILY
MANNING UP: A CHALLENGE AND A RESPONSIBLE
Has in your face everyone ever said in your face, “Man up, yo!”? Normally such remarks are said disparagingly, as when a man conducts himself in a manner perceived as “unmanly.”
In the “the Real Men’s Issue” of Truth North, a publication of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon, writers John Calica and Mars Quizon said in the column God@work, that “For Christian men, “manning up” should be taken both as a challenge and as a responsibility,” in being able to rise above the challenge and as a responsibility,” in being able to rise up above daunting circumstances and consistently act in a manner befitting the Man in the Family.
