I took a survey of the men who attend The Man in the Mirror Bible Study.

First, I asked, "How many of you are having work-related problems? If you are, raise your hands." About 50 percent of the men raised their hands.

Then I said, "Raise your hand if you or someone in your family is having a health problem?" Roughly 30 to 40 percent did so.

Next I said, "If you're having money problems, please raise your hand." This time something like 60 percent raised their hands.

Next I said, "If you are having some kind of a relationship problem, raise your hand." Again, about 50 percent raised them up.

Then I said, "If you don't have any problems, raise your hand." A mere four men hoisted their arms.

Finally I asked, "For those who just raised your hands indicating that you don't have any problems right now, how many of you lied?"

One of the four men raised his hand, and we all had a good laugh!

When you encounter men today, whether barista or barrister, please be aware that over 90 percent of them are facing some kind of major struggle. So let's be kind to each other for the glory of Christ.
