Well, what seed does a woman have? The prophecy is in the male child, the Hebrew word Zera. He wants to kill your seed. David is the canvas on which I paint, because David is the first kid that I see that God called to be a king while he was still a kid and said, "I have found a man after my own heart". And that was one of the reasons Samuel had trouble finding David, because Samuel was looking for a man, but God was talking about a boy. Why did God call the boy a man? And so, I wanna share with you that there is a king in every kid, and there is a kid in every king.
And most men die with needles in their arm, sick, diseased, and in trouble because nobody ever looked them in the eye and told them, "I see the king in you". Because when somebody sees the king in you, it makes you control the kid in you. Oh, and the toys we play with, toys. Where my boys at? Every boy in here knows his toys. My brother says the only difference between a man and a boy is how much he pays for his toys, but some of the toys we play with have no price at all, if you count money as the only price you pay.
But there are some things that you play with that cost more than money. Because somewhere in your toy chest, sir, is your kryptonite. And until you define your kryptonite, you will always be vulnerable to destruction. Hmm, I think much of who I am today is the result of the fact that my mother had a proclivity of looking me in the eye and making me think, when I was just a child, that my thoughts were important, as she cooked our dinner, and I sat by the table ambling on and on, mountains of meandering words and heaps of foolishness.
She signified my thoughts with her attention and made me think that I was wise, when I was just silly as a fool. But the brightness in her eyes convinced me that there was something in my head worth preserving, so I tried many drugs and got stuck by none of them and kept on walking through the drug phase of my life. They are absolutely wonderful magazines, and they give you all kinds of information. And so, I thought it was incumbent upon me that when I wrote the book and when I did the conferences to include sections for women to read, too, as I attempt to translate the language of manhood.
You see, we speak a different language, and we approach things differently. When women talk, they talk in circles. It reminds me of a plane about to land on a runway. It circles around and around, and then it makes its approach, and then it makes its descent, and it hits the runway.
She starts talking about the grass. You went out there to cut the grass, thinking that will satisfy her. She was circling the runway. She never hit the ground. Women talk in circles. Men talk in straight lines. I was gonna go to Big Bear because they had a sale on, but the traffic was backed up all the way up I had to go down 35 and up Euclid.
I came up Euclid and got to Now you know I hated to pay full price for chicken when I knew that right over at Big Bear they had it on sale, but I went ahead and got it anyway. And while I was in the store, I saw some ice cream and some chips. Can you believe it? That girl is pregnant again. Anyway, I got back home". And the reason that they talk in circles He will only dwell with you if he can understand you. And when he becomes confused, he becomes frightened.
And when he becomes frightened, he becomes withdrawn. Where are my fellows at? Am I right about it? Can I go a little bit deeper tonight? The woman processes externally.
Fellas, you have to understand that women process by communicating, by talking. When something is really bothering her, she wants to talk about it. And when a woman thinks, she talks out loud. I know. I feel you. Where my sisters at?
Now, sisters, let me explain something to you. Let me help you with this. Men process internally. Listen, sisters. This is really important. The more something bothers us, the less we say about it.
When a man is really worried and really upset and really frustrated, this is what he says Absolutely nothing, because what you do externally we do internally. We go in our cave to process the issue. I say we are he-motional. He cares about it just as much as you do. Here is the problem.
We go inside the process. You go outside the process. Here is the problem, though. The most dangerous thing that can happen to a man is for him to be in prison, solitary confinement.
The very first thing that God teaches us about men, he says, "It is not good for a man to be alone". And the truth of the matter is there are men all around this room, who went in their cave to process something years ago. Some of them went in the cave over their first wife who left them. Some of them went in the cave over the job that fired them. It is the gross loneliness of having no one who understands the dream that died on your way to masculinity.
So, my sisters and my brothers, I came to blow the whistle and sound the alarm and tell you that there are men in this room and at your dinner table, going to your school.
They are your sons, your husbands, your boyfriends, and your lovers, and they are secretly dying in their cave. They are in solitary confinement. They are alone, and they do not tell you because they cannot speak. Why would a preacher stop preaching for a minute and go this deep into personal relationships? Eighty percent of the suicides that occur in this country are committed by men.
Eighty percent, not fifty, not sixty, not forty-five, eighty percent of the people who drive cars off cliffs or stick guns in their mouth and blow their brains out are men. Let me go deeper. Men are 3 times more likely to commit suicide in the middle of their lives, their 40s and 50s, than any other time. When I was teaching this in my church, one young man stood up, and he said, "Pastor, I hear you.
I understand you. He said, "But I just wanna know one thing". I said, "What, son"? He said, "Will I ever be happy"? He said, "I think I can hold on if I knew that someday I will be happy". And he said, "I just want to know will I ever be happy"? He said, "I just want to know will I ever be happy? Me, not make other folks happy.
Will I ever be happy? When will it be about me"? All the stores have got all kinds of music, all kinds of songs. They get all kinds of gifts, all kinds of flowers, all kinds of cards. And so, they die and they die. And when we die, we die with our lips closed, because we are taught not to say anything. At little ages, they tell us, "Come on, Junior.
