In 1992, a movie was released called A Few Good Men. The story line focused on the workings within the military that do not get reported. An order had been given and carried out but never logged anywhere. The order was to kill another soldier. Only a couple of ‘good’ men stood up for what they believed in and told the truth.
Father’s Day is a week from tomorrow. My earthly daddy is gone to be with my Heavenly Father. So, while I won’t get to celebrate with him, there are a few ‘good’ men I know that I will honor in different ways.
If I were to name them and they read this, I think they would say they aren’t ‘good.’ In Romans 3, Paul says no one is good, not even one. That humbleness is part of what makes them ‘good’ in my heart.
I think if we really thought about it, we could come up with a list of a few ‘good’ men.
But it might be shorter than we think.
