Extreme Man Cave

by Jesse Lahey on April 6, 2012

Extreme Man Cave.There are times when a guy really feels drained. He needs to get away from the pressures of the world, to decompress, to forget about life for a while. After some time in the man cave, a guy can emerge with new energy and perspective to make a difference in his world.

Today is Good Friday. Around the world, 2 billion people are remembering a guy who went into a literal cave, feeling pretty beat up by the world. In fact, he had to be carried into the cave, because he had been tortured and left to die of asphyxiation and loss of blood. It was a rough way to start a weekend.

When the new week began, however, he was back to life and ready to work. And now, he had a new kind of energy. It seemed like he was everywhere at once. That was some cave!

Of course, it wasn’t the cave that was special; it was the man.

And so it is, with you and I.

The world needed a savior, a hero. Throughout his life, Jesus demonstrated that he knew when to get away to re-energize, but he also knew when to step forward to serve and lead and even sacrifice.

The world needs you, too. There are people who need you to be their hero. Take time to re-charge periodically, whether that’s “man cave time” or whatever place or activity works best for you. Then step forward to serve and lead the world to exciting new places.
