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……😁😁
