A Piece written by Bronwyn Elias

“Somewhere along the way, we flipped the script and we ran away from Gods’ original plan for womanhood and manhood. While I can never begin to imagine what it’s like to be a man, I definitely know that Gods plan isn’t for the bar to be as low as it’s been set. My dear brothers:”

Earn the respect

Be a gentleman. Solely not to impress us but for Gods glory. Although statistics show that many young men have grown up in households where they have never seen leadership in action but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. For those who are willing to enroll, the creator of the role (God ) hasn’t closed the position. Just as Adam led Eve without any reference point, God can help you do the same. While many men expect automatic respect from their women for the sole reason that they are male, may I gently remind you it is earned. If you are going to wear the crown, you must man up to the requirements and earn the respect you believe you deserve. You can’t expect a woman to treat you like a king when you’re behaving like a clown.

Lead!

I believe God created Adam first so He could teach Him to lead before Eve came along. When Eve came along he could then lead her, teach her how to live, survival tactics, show her around the garden, show her how to communicate with God etc. What will you teach your one day spouse? Leadership begins way before you meet her. Although God created both sexes equal, as women we still look to men as initiators in relationships. The question is where are you leading us? Is it to Christ or is it with your flesh? Beware that as much as God can use you to for His glory, the enemy is also recruiting agents for his mission. Whose mission are you fulfilling?It’s God desire that you lead with Him in the front. Not only so that you can unleash the best that God has for you but you are also to set the tone for how your son will treat women or how your baby girl will allow herself to be treated.

 

Serve us as your sisters doesn’t mean you treat us like your wife.

Without a doubt there are many young men that love God with all their heart and will do anything for His glory but when it comes to lust for women the standards tend to slip. I’m sure you are familiar with the lame phrase “I’m a guy God knows I have needs.”  The Word clearly commands, ‘… make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.(Romans 13:14). Therefore, respect us as someone’s daughter and children of God. Let your actions towards us be pleasing before God and let your flesh have no say in the matter. While we are being honest guys, if physical intimacy is the only thing you have to offer; you cannot hold down a household, lead spiritually or provide, I’m afraid you really don’t have a lot to offer my brother.
I bet some of you might say,” but Bronwyn I don’t see any women acting right so why should we?”. Whether you like it or not God requires you to be obedient in spite of who is or isn’t acting right.

1 Corinthians 13:11 (NKJV) When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
