Before, I was raised that an independent woman is attractive..and it is, BUT it is also attractive..and biblical to step back and let the man feel like he is worth something. That he is the provider..he is the shelter..he is your hero.
He works hard all day to provide for his family. He needs to come home to someone who appreciates all his hard work. We must, instead of looking at all the things he doesn't do, look into all that he DOES do. To make anything work in a relationship, we must always always not knock down the person we are with, but raise them up.
Society has twisted the thoughts on men due to sitcoms and movies..making them a joke. Someone to poke fun at or demean. But thats not the way it should be. We need to really step back and give men the applause they deserve.
I promise the love and appreciation that you give to them you will most definitely get back in return. A smile for a smile..love for love. So my job for my son, is as he grows older, to show him what a big impact he has in my family. To raise him to know what it is like to be appreciated for the man he will become, so that someday he will find someone who will also appreciate him just as much.
"encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored." Titus 2:4-5
