And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. -Genesis 2:22-24 ESV
Satan’s #1 weapon formed against us is CONFUSION. The world system and the political movement is OUT to destroy the family, men and make women feel like they are treated LESS THAN. God has given the woman a beautiful role and gift of serving alongside her husband. As Matthew Henry wrote, “Woman was made from a rib of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal to him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be beloved.”
Leader, as blogged by Kimberly Wagner, “The woman’s role of helper is not a demeaning position of inequality, but rather a privileged position of influence and inspiration. Our men need our help-thus the creation of woman. But we must be careful that our role of helping is one that inspires him to be the man God created him to be, not one of domination and manipulation in an effort to produce changes we want.” Men are called to lead the family! The Bible calls men to lead, yet In the world today, the only illegal drug on a college campus is testosterone! A blatant attempt to subvert the will of God!
Conduit, one of the greatest gifts a woman can give her husband as his “helper” is the FREEDOM TO LEAD. If he FEARS her reaction, FEARS he will be corrected, FEARS rejection or belittling from her, he will either retaliate in cruel domination or retreat into a silent cave.” An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones. (prov 12:4) Despite what the world tells us- You matter men! When men don’t lead, family’s stumble. When men don’t lead, countries crumble! Beside many great men you will also find a great woman!
