That One Wound Every Man Carries

{ That One Wound, Those Several Wounds That Makes Up The Wound Every Man Carries }

A quotation from the Author’s book:

“The story of Adam’s fall is every man’s story. It is simple and straightforward, almost mythic in its brevity and depth. And so every man comes into the world set up for a [fall], a loss of heart. Then comes the story we are much more aware of—our own story. Where Adam’s story seems simple and straightforward, our own seems complex and detailed; many more characters are involved, and the plot is sometimes hard to follow. But the outcome is always the same: a wound in the soul. Every boy, in his journey to become a man, takes an arrow in the center of this heart, in the place of his strength. Because the wound is rarely discussed and even more rarely healed, every man carries a wound. And the wound is nearly always given by his father.”

My comments on John Eldredge’s intro!

Oh sure, almost always The Wound, those wounds that make up ‘The Wound,’ usually does come from fathers almost always. We are not talking about everyday wounds that might come and go from mothers and others in a man’s life. We are talking about ‘that’ Wound we all carry in life as men, whether it’s a heavy burden or one that seems to never get any attention at all and usually men dismiss it out of fear!

The author’s point, in this paragraph, is made for further development in a chapter in his book for men who need to fight a ‘fight,’ a ‘war’ to win, and a ‘beauty’ (truth) to save!  This paragraph is an introductory paragraph to a chapter on men with a wound they carry in life. A wound that causes them from doing and living as God meant them to be; A mighty warrior with an adventure! To come alive in Yeshua!
