Small Man Syndrome describes the insecure male mindset that causes him to put others down in order to feel good about himself. These devotionals for men look at guys from the Bible who suffered from SMS and those who conquered it.
Classic SMS refers to short guys who buy big things to compensate for being vertically challenged. Spiritual Small Man Syndrome is much worse. A man with a small soul will cut others down so he feels bigger. He wants to be big stuff but lacks the character to accomplish it. He finds it much easier to humiliate and manipulate.
Do you put your wife down? Argue with your mother? Belittle your children? Compete with your neighbor? Gossip about your coworker? You may have a touch of this dreaded condition.
Devotionals for men
Do not read the men’s devotionals on this blog if you get your feelings hurt easily. In the tradition of Elijah, Jeremiah, and Jesus, this is a tough message which many do not want to hear. If you want easy-speak, politically-correct milk, you need to drink from another source. The principles contained here are for men ready to bite into the steak of godly manhood (Hebrews 5:12-14). Not everyone will benefit from this approach.
In this site, we will be exclusive in our discussions of men. We do not address “men” in the general sense of “mankind,” but “men” as the unique male gender God created separate from women. God has a special place for women as mothers, grandmothers, and other kinds of leaders including anointed ministers in spiritual gifts. However, this series on Small Man Syndrome will address the specific needs and challenges of male humanity, while allowing other resources to speak to women.
Find the solution to a problem many men do not even realize they have. Let the character of Christ, the greatest man, grow in you through these devotional for men.
