“The heroic male identity arises when we are outraged about some specific instance of evil and become warriors in defense of the sacred.” –Sam Keene
This quote isn’t just for men, by the way. Anger has been hard-wired into us by God to be against evil. However, we usually use that emotion out of selfishness or pride or for some other not-as-noble reason. When was the last time you and I were truly outraged about some injustice in the world? I know I’ve been too passive in the face of suffering–not a protector, but a bystander. Jesus healed the broken and wants me to do so as well. Where will you and I enter the struggle?
