Our thanks to The Representation Project for permission to post this video, and to Upworthy for bringing it to our attention. Our WebGems selection for January, 2014 offers an insight that may be key to reducing violence in our society, pointing out how our culture teaches boys unhealthy habits.
In Jesus’ radically loving, forgiving, nonviolent example, we have an entirely new definition for “man up!”
- Jesus showed emotion. He even wept. (John 11:35)
- Jesus taught us love not just of friend but of enemy. (Matt. 5:43-46, Luke 6:27-28)
- Jesus advised a humble spirit (Matt. 20:26-28)
Lord, may all God’s children, and all of Your good creation, experience greater peace in the coming days.

From time to time, and with permission, The Center features exceptional outside content, including sermon excerpts and motivational or inspirational videos, that we feel will bless our visitors. We call this curated content WebGems. We coined the term WebGems to indicate a treasure (Matt 13:44) we’ve discovered, and that will be enriching spiritually. WebGems already spans a wide range of genres, and introduces artists as well as eMinistry content that will be unfamiliar to many of our viewers. If you would like to suggest a post, or have found this post particularly helpful, we always welcome positive feedback and input.
