Enjoy the Differences!

“If Laurie, Linda, Michelle, and Liz go out for lunch, they will call each other Laurie, Linda, Michelle, and Liz. If Mark, Juan, Franklin, and Paul go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla, Peanut Head, and Snappy!” ~ anonymous

Women's lunch bag

Men's lunch bagMen and women are definitely different… and it’s not just in the names they call people or the lunch bag they choose.

Bill and Pam Farrel have spent years pointing that out, and their best-selling book, Men Are Like Waffles, Women Are Like Spaghetti, is packed with ways to understand the opposite sex.

For example, “When a man watches TV, he is simply watching TV. A woman on the other hand, might seize this moment, thinking he’s relaxed and that this could be a great time to ask him, “What are you thinking, sweetheart?” And no matter how he answers, he can’t win. If he says “Nothing,” she will think he’s lying or hiding something. He’s not. He’s just parked in one of his boxes. He may, to please her, look around quickly for one of his boxes that has words in it. The problem is she just simply cannot imagine a moment in her mind without words!”  LOL!

God created men and women (Genesis 1:26-27) in His image, but designed them to be different in so many ways ~ to complement and help each other. Though equal in God’s sight, men and women have distinct roles and functions in the home and church (Genesis 2:18; Galatians 3:26-28; Ephesians 5:22-33). Those distinctions are wonderful when we understand God’s purposes and design. Embrace your womanhood, Ladies! It’s a good thing! And encourage the manhood of the men in your sphere of influence.
