If men were to study the contour of a woman’s soul with the same interest with which they scrutinize the shape of her body, there would be little misunderstanding b/w the sexes. Ed Silivoso- Women: God’s Secret Weapon pg 97 par3.
This is so true. Every where I go now-a-days, I see men looking at women b/c of their outward appearance. They ooh and ahh over how big the woman’s boobs or butt are. And it’s terrible! It really is! But the thing about it is… b/c of women’s ignorance of what they are and who the could be, they give men the option to look. If Men would reconsider their ways toward women and get to know them more… there would be a different way that women are portrayed in this society. And best of all… Women would be taken seriously!
Women are fascinating, intriguing, perplexing and at times confusing books. Every time men get to the last page and feel they have learned everything there is to learn, an entire new volume is added overnight! -Ed Silivoso- Women: God’s Secret Weapon pg 98 par 1.
After countless attempts to refashion women, men discover that women cannot be changed. instead of accepting women as God has fashioned them, men become frustrated and hopeless. Men should consider another possibility: that women are different b/c they have not been created to serve men but to serve with them in a complimentary capacity. -Ed Silivoso- Women: God’s Secret Weapon pg98 par3.
I hear so many stories of how men use the head of this household to rule over women, but in fact… the issue of head of the household is different. Whatever is acquired under a man is what He is responible for. That’s what head of the household is about. Yes. Wives must submit to their husbands, but husbands should love their wives as Christ loves the church… Ephesians 5 tells us all about that! A man is head of his household… he protects his family and should be honored in that way; but it doesn’t mean that the wife has to “obey” him in certain ways! She needs to be right there beside him in making decisions and honoring him as the main decision maker… not be afraid of him or afraid of what he may do if she speaks! It’s hard for men and women to understand the things of God, b/c we are human and have fallen short of the glory. But if we can ask God for revelation on how to treat each other and how to restore each other to our full capacity… then the whole “head of the household” would work out the way God intended it to be- a Holy matter!
Men and women both have to realize that they aren’t supposed to be in competition with each other or even pointing fingers at one another… saying “she ate the apple…;” they are to be ONE with one another as Jesus is ONE with the Father! In Unity! And when that happens! Man and God will crush Satan’s head! and the restoration of men and women will be established… and oh what a great day that will be! 🙂
Just remember: God made women the way they are to keep life interesting.
