His Perspective

his-perspectivePaul, the bond-servant of Christ Jesus, commanded women to love their men, to be sensible, pure workers at home that the Word of God not be blasphemed. (Titus 2:4) In a world where “love” is cheapened to price of a dozen roses or the size of a diamond ring and feminism is glorified as “women’s liberation from man’s dominion” it’s hard to find true answers in our quest for definitions. What is love? How do we seek to serve our men that God’s Word not suffer harm? What does a sensible, pure homemaker look like in today’s post-modern society?

The disciple Jesus loved gives those of us who would understand true love a great reminder: “Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in action and truth.” (1 John 3:18) English teachers will insist that love is an abstract noun-an idea. Scripture tells us it’s a verb. Sisters, let’s stop just using empty words to express love. Let’s really get active about loving according to the truth of scripture!

Our greatest help in our search has been the insight of our own men–Lauren’s husband, Nathaniel, and Abigail’s father, Lane. We’ve also been greatly encouraged by hearing the thoughts of other godly men who value Biblical womanhood. Some of the men who are seeking to work out this Biblical pattern graciously agreed to allow us to publish their insights on pertinent issues relation to Biblical roles and men’s and women’s relationships.   Feel free to share what you find, and don’t be afraid to ask your own men the same questions to discover what honors them and proves to them your love–for God’s glory.
