You have seen them, the bachelor groups and flocks of jakes and toms running together. They band together in as close friendship groups as possible, and then…the strut and the rut come in. The spring is filled with gobbles and birds that want to bash the other suitors of the hens heads in. The fall is filled with rattling horns and shoving matches to exert dominance and breeding rights. These males who were running partners just a few weeks and days before now are aggressive toward each other. They do not trust each other.

I’m not sure there is a more appealing characteristic of God for men, than that of a friend. Of all the relationships that men can have with other men, there’s no other relationship that exudes a sense of acceptance like the one that comes from a true friend. I can screw up and a friend will still accept me. I can whine and he will listen. I can laugh and even brag and he will both laugh and allow me to wallow in my pride (with limits).
• Calling someone a friend carries an extraordinary amount of encouragement
• Not many bonds come with so much to offer than that of a friend
• Acceptance is a key characteristic of friendship

Master Sportsman feature by Gary Miller –
For men who have been a Christian for some time, we need to realize that we have a responsibility to mentor those who are new in the faith. Jesus spent time with 12 men and one of them became a deserter. But the remaining 11 original disciples changed the world. I think this is still the best process. We’re focusing too much on the masses and too little on one small group at a time. I have found that I function best as a mentor when the environment is men-friendly and when I can show that Christian men are still men in the truest sense of the term.
• Going Deeper in friendships with fewer equals greater kingdom impact
• Real men are transparent with their lifelong friends
• If a man has 10 to 12 close friends during his lifetime then he is truly blessed
