Throughout life, humanity is pressed with decisions. Regardless of whether one chooses to make decisions or not, one will be made. The harder the decision, the better one is to make the right choice by thinking through it. Within the book of Job in the Old Testament, in chapter 31, the reader is provided with a rare glimpse into the life of God's servant. This chapter is commonly labeled "Job's Final Appeal." He lays out his testimony before his friends, that he has made conscious decisions to walk the right way before God and man. This small book is teeming with practical applications to living, or raising, a godly male and one of the best outlines to finding the right man, due to its basis upon Scripture. Job explains how certain desires, which affect all mankind, were pressed upon him, but that he denied the desires of wrong and quested to be God's servant. Based on the Biblical blueprint of Job, the "Job 31 man," rises as the counterpart to the Proverbs 31 woman. Denied Desires is an open, honest, candid, and relevant writing for all. "What does it mean to be a godly man? Using the words of Job, Pastor Matt describes in great detail what it means. His description of the Job 31 man is both challenging and immensely practical. Whether you are a young man seeking to live a godly life or parents seeking to raise a godly son, you will find hope and help here."
