The Real Strength

獻給即將進入婚姻, 或已經進入婚姻, 或是渴望進入婚姻的男性友人–父親節快樂
 
The strength of a man isn’t seen in the width of his shoulders.
It’s seen in the width of his arms that encircle and protect you.
The strength of a man isn’t in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers.
The strength of a man isn’t in the words he speaks.
It’s in how he keeps his word.
The strength of a man isn’t how many buddies he has.
It’s how good a buddy he is with children.
The strength of a man isn’t in how respected he is at work.
It’s in how he is respected at home.
The strength of a man isn’t in how hard he hits.
It’s in how tender he touches.
The strength of a man isn’t in the weight he can lift.
It’s in the burdens he can carry.
 
Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city–Proverb 16:32
 
真正的力量
一個男人的力量不是由他肩膀的寬度來判斷
而是那圍繞保護你的雙臂
一個男人的力量不是在他沉穩有力的聲調裡
而在那低聲細語的溫柔字句間
一個男人的力量不是在他所說出的言語
而是他如何言行如一
一個男人的力量無關他有多少朋友
而在於他是否能當孩子的好朋友
一個男人的力量不是他在工作場所多麼受人尊重
而是他在家中如何被人尊敬
一個男人的力量不在於他用多大的力氣揮拳
而是他能多溫柔碰觸
一個男人的力量不是他能舉起多重的東西
而是他能承擔起多少的責任
 
不輕易發怒的, 勝過勇士 ; 治服己心的, 強如取城–箴言16章32節
 
真正的力量不是打架時的力氣, 而是付出愛的勇敢.  (The real strength is not the power to fight, but the power to love.)
 
蘇姍深覺得這是一個好男生的特質之ㄧ, 與所有男性朋友分享, 願你們成為你們身邊人這樣的男性, 也願女性朋友有幸能與有真正力量的男人相遇相守….
