Day 181: Be Gallant

Proverbs 30:12

Don’t imagine yourself to be quite presentable when you haven’t had a bath in weeks.


Don’t be haughty and arrogant in your self-estimation.

A FivestarMan is gallant. To be gallant means to be fashionably groomed and appropriate for every occasion. That means that we are to be presentable. We should make an effort to be appropriately dressed.

To be appropriately dressed means that we do not dress for a distraction of the occasion and to draw attention to ourselves – we’re just simply appropriate. As authentic men, we should dress to demonstrate some dignity to represent our manhood.

As I travel to speak to men each week, I must work ahead to determine what is the appropriate dress. For example, if I am speaking at a church, I have to check to see what they’re wearing. Some churches wear suits and ties, while others wear jeans and untucked shirts. If I get it wrong, I’m inappropriate for the service and will actually cause a distraction. It would be just as inappropriate to overdress as it would underdress.

Another area that we need to be observant of is our grooming. Old-style barbershops are making a resurgence. There is nothing that compares with a good shave and trims from a real craftsman.

Let’s step up our game in our dress and personal hygiene.


Represent yourself - and manhood with some class. Share on X
