"The God said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." Genesis 1:26
"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers." Psalm 1:1-6
"How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:9-11

"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness." 1 Timothy 6:11
"In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us." Titus 2:7-8
Boys that become men are taught to compete and prove their value. Unfortunately, many believe success comes from: having a dynamic career; providing their family with everything they deserve; making their family happy; not showing emotions; protecting children from all negative experiences; solving all problems; managing live while not asking for help.
If these is our measuring tools, we are embracing fear of failure, fear of rejection and unnecessary stress.
God offers another option. If we find our identity, purpose and value as His child, we can experience truth that sets us free. God offers the gift of identity (his child), the gift of purpose (walking with Him by faith), and value (worth Jesus dying in our place).
