Josh Hatcher talks about how a man should respond to the Coronavirus pandemic, the panic, and quarantine.
1. Be a protector.
You are a shepherd, a protector of your family and your community. Keep them safe, provide for them, and protect them. If that means following a bunch of rules you think are stupid so that your family and neighbors are safe, then do it. But protect and provide for them.
2. Be a thermostat.
Not a thermometer. Don’t react in emotion – rather set the emotional temperature for those around you. Be calm. Be at peace. Control your emotions.
3. Love your family
Enjoy the time that your kids are home from school. Eat dinner together. Invest in those relationships. Don’t gripe about how badly behaved they are – or drink to numb yourselves from the way they act. Rather – if they are unruly – teach them how to behave with discipline and love!
