Have you encountered the phenomenon of the Man boys?
They are men by age but boys by action.
They are the 29-37 year-olds who still game, who still drink too much, who still party too hard – trying to relive or revive their college experience. They refuse to hold down a legitimate relationship and fill their days with reminiscing and looking backward not forward.
There is a specific breed that reside in Jackson Hole – an enlightening, tongue-in-cheek article about them can be found here.
It’s all fun and games and not of any real consequence, except that Andy’s recent message highlights this scripture:
“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me”
– 1 Corinthians 13:11
He spoke about the importance of putting childish ways behind you, growing up, and taking on the responsibilities of manhood. It was a pretty powerful message. I’m eager to see what his next message highlights.
Do you know any Man boys? Are you dating one? I would advise waiting for the real thing, so if you marry, you’ll have hooked your wagon to a man, not a boy still indulging in the ways of childhood.
