Wednesday Word

Sunday as I sat in the Worship Service at my church for the Father’s Day sermon, I realized I had some things to work on and thought maybe I could help someone else.

Women and Men are the same (both having emotions, intellect, will) however we are remarkably different.  Men and women complete each other.  Women, let men be men. Men, let your women be women.   We should not try to change or redefine how God designed men and women.  It’s a beautiful thing when men are being men and women are being women.

Proverbs 31:10-31 (This is Tonia’s paraphrase from Paster Brande’s sermon)

Women are very valuable; we are a first class creation that God put into existence for a specific reason.  A married woman adds value to her husband.  You should not devalue your husband.  Sometimes we have tendencies to talk negatively about our spouse to others.  If you do this, you are no longer giving value to your husband.  It can affect your husband, your marriage, your spiritual walk, and your children. Degrading your spouse also determines what the community thinks of you, your husband and your children.  If you participate in this and constantly talk down about your husband, he will lose value in you and you will lose his trust.  The best thing you can do for your husband is to lift up your husband in front of others, focusing on what he does right.  Tell him and others you love him and you value your marriage.  This will have a positive impact on the way he acts and loves you.  The Godly Christian Woman lifts up her husband and in return she gains his trust and love.  He trusts her because he knows that when she is away she has his best interests in mind.  A strong woman upholds and encourages her husband. A weak woman degrades/tears down her husband, children, friends, or family. Degrading others in an attempt to appear superior is actually a reflection of your poor choices and lack of character.

To quote Pastor Phillip Brande “She is to be strong but not stifling, confident but not dominating- her husband and her children call her blessed.”  “This is the kind of women the church needs, the type of women that the community needs” and I couldn’t agree more. This message has challenged me to strive to be the Godly woman that I was created to be, positively influencing my family, and impacting my community with the beauty of God’s intended design. I hope other women are challenged also!
