The Man Who Finds A Wife Finds A Treasure, And He Receives Favor From The LORD
I'm straight up old school and will never embrace the idea or believe in women taking on men roles and chasing after them.....the biblical definition of the roles of husband and wife has been rejected as outdated and old in today's liberated and enlightened society....I'm thinking part of the reason women struggle so hard today is because of their desire for headship...I know some don't like to here this but here goes: after the fall of Adam and Eve, God told Eve, "your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you" (Genesis 3:16b)....in other words God was saying, things will be different now, Eve....you are going to have a bend in your nature, as will Adam, that is a direct result of the curse of sin.....that bend in a word is selfishness.....the word for "desire" in the verse means "to compel, impel, urge, or seek control over....." God was telling Eve she would have a sinful and selfish desire to seek control over Adam, to usurp the place of man's headship.....when God told Eve that Adam would rule over her, He meant that man would seek to dominate and control the woman. (that control does not mean manipulate)
Now I caught the re-run of the reality show love and hip-hop last night.....and was take aback, floored shock, when this beautiful young woman ask her man to marry her.....come on present generation of young women.....were is your faith, worthy,esteem, respect dignity? I believe any woman that will ask a man to marry her is the same kinda woman that will sleep with a man on a first date......this is the same kinda women who will be complaining that her man never takes her out....she will be hollering he don't respect me, he don't show me love he don't treat me like a wife...that's because he didn't ask you to be his wife.
