Today I’m talking with my good friend, Dr.Eric Mason.  Eric is a husband, father, and the pastor and founder of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia. As author of Manhood Restored, I knew he would be a perfect guest to have on my podcast to discuss men and relationships.

Relationships aren’t easy. There isn’t a step by step manual that instructs you on specific words to speak or refrain from, appropriate time to share or adequate space to give. Learning to love well requires an acknowledgment that we are all created in the image of Christ, adjustment of our perception to match God’s truth, a change in trained behaviors and a lot of  communication.

Drawing from years of experience in his own marriage, Eric is convinced that when a man feels wanted, he feels respected. Men want to be respected and wanted. Simple in words, not so much in execution. So we talk about the practicality of showing respect , the difference it makes and situational circumstances that may make it difficult.

Even if you aren’t in a relationship at this point in time, this podcast is worth your while. We all interact with men at some level. And we all have the tendency to base our respect or our perception of one’s identity on their performance coupled with our limited understanding.

Let’s Talk!

  • Do you find it difficult to consistently show respect to those who don’t perform according to your standards?
