Today is Valentines Day and love is in the air. If you are single then
not so much….haha
But I am a bit disturbed. Fifty shades of Grey was released this
weekend. I am disturbed at the amount of publicity this movie
has generated. This is not a post about what’s wrong with the movie,
because there is too much on that topic.
I have noticed how the world is trying to define what love is, what
intimacy is, what connection is! Young people are going in their
droves to watch what the world has to say about relationships,
intimacy and love!!
I don’t know about you but that doesn’t sit too well with me. I am
not up for the world shaping my view about love, intimacy,
and relationships! I want God to do that. I want godly men and women
to show us the way, to teach us! I will do my part teaching the truth,
and repacing the lies the enemy is selling us! Because when it comes
to love, and intimacy the enemy doesn’t know anything! What the
enemy knows is how to pervert a good thing!
Can you believe that was the introduction??!! 😁
Lets move on…..
“Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with
your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner
and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing
will hinder your prayers. 1 Peter 3:7
I have been reading a book titled “Hero” by Fred Stoeker.
I shared some very intersting thoughts he had on the 1 Peter 3:7
on Instagram. Being it Valentines Day I thought it would be
appropriate to go over some of those points for those of you
who never got the chance to read them, so here goes!
In in the original Greek language, the term for “weaker partner”
can also be translated “fine china” which I think is a better
translation in this context.
How would you handle fine china? With respect as you tenderly
appreciate its finest points. You don’t slam fine china around
or put it through the blast of the dishwasher.
– end of statement –
I like that. Let me talk to the men for a little bit…..What would our
relationships look like if as men we treated the women in our lives
as fine china and not some bust up, rusty tin can??
Rusty bust up tin cans are thrown around, and disgarded!
They are not treated with any respect.
Rusty bust up tin cans are treated as COMMON!
This Valentines Day I would like you to think about your relationship.
Are you honoring God in your relationships? Are you treating the
women in your life like fine china or a rusty busted up tin can?
Honor God by honoring the women in your life by treating
them like fine china. I am not saying it’s easy, I am not saying
it’s a walk in the park. What I am saying is we need to honor God
by honoring the women in our lives! On that note I will
sign off….Happy Valentines Day and remember, somewhere out
there a duck is looking your way……😁😁
Great post Rolain! And very true indeed 🙂
Thanks Khushboo…. Happy Valentine’s!
Ohhhh Rolain: Don’t get me started on that movie! I find it disgusting how people, particularly women, are flocking to watch pornography. Talk about Satan being well and alive!!!!!! Now that I got that off my chest, what in the world does, “a duck is looking your way” mean? lol Love this post!
I totally agree Sue. It’s crazy how lost the world has become! Happy Valentine’s to you.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
And about the duck I read something that made me laugh hence the inspiration 😁
Anatidaephobia is defined as a pervasive, irrational fear that one is being watched by a duck. The anatidaephobic individual fears that no matter where they are or what they are doing, a duck watches.
I pray there are no readers who are Anatidaephobic because that would not be funny…..
Happy valentine, dear brother Rolain. Well thought. Many love and blessings to you 🙂
Happy Valentine to you too Karina and thank you….God bless you and the family! I hope you had a great weekend! 😃
We all have same sentiments about that particular movie. Btw, well said, we should treat our relationship like a fine china.
God bless you always! 🙂
Thank you Julienne! I feel as a man I need to challenge other men to raise the bar when it comes to treating women! Women need to be treated like fine china and not something worthless….it will go a long way in the relationship! Thanks for sharing and Happy Valentine’s to you….!
This made me think on how distorted our world is. Therefore, we as Christian should step up on everything. We should be beyond this world. Belated Happy Valentine’s. 🙂
