Men For Godly Women
by Chris Jones
As a culture we so miss the mark, when it comes to living a godly lifestyle. None-the-less, our desires are for God-sized blessings. Perhaps chief among them, for a Christian man, is “a Proverbs 31 woman”. If you haven’t read it recently, take some time to refamiliarize yourself.
It’s quite the mirror to hold before oneself, especially in a culture that so diligently glorifies and objectifies contrasting character. It’s a battle between competing ideologies. For many Christian women, the struggle is all too real.
Men, whether we realize it or not, we cast our vote in this contest, with the decisions we make. What entertainment are we consuming? What products are we purchasing, based on what advertisements? Who gets our attention? How are we treating the woman in our lives? Do we promote an environment where everyone is equally valued?
Take time, today, to stop and notice the role you play. Are you contributing to a culture that compels our daughters to chase fiction, or one that inspires them to become who they’re called to be?
God, help us recognize our need to be part of the solution. Help us find practical and effective answers to the question of how we can change the tide. Allow us to see past all the facades, to the wounded hearts inside. Help us take responsibility to change the game for generations of women to come.
