Summary: A man is infinitely superior to a woman at being a man and a woman is infinitely superior to a man at being a woman! God made us completely different so that He might make man and woman ONE! Caution: let no one but God define your marriage and sexuality!
I’m told that an angel came to Adam before Eve was created and said, “I have a proposition for you Adam. We are going to create for you an individual like you, but a little different – a female!” So Adam said, “Well what will she be all about? What will she do?” The angel told Adam, “She will take such good care of you, smell so sweet, love and respect you 24/7, and she will look so beautiful!” To that Adam said, “Well, this sounds great, but what will she cost me?” The angel responded, “She’s going to cost an arm and a leg!” Finally Adam said, “What do you think I can get for a rib?”
Question – whose better, the man or the woman? The answer is YES! A man is infinitely superior to a woman at being a man and a woman is infinitely superior to a man at being a woman!
God made us completely different so that He might make man and woman ONE! Caution: let no one but God define your marriage and sexuality!
Adam has dominion over all the animals but yet wasn’t satisfied; none of the animals could satisfy and supply all his needs. Then God makes Eve - and Adam proclaimed, “This is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh!”
So immediately we now know human sexuality is established for all generations!
So let’s look at the wonderful differences that unite us in marriage.
1. The Beauty And The Beast.
Generally women are weaker than men!
1 Peter 3:7 “Husbands, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.”
God created Adam stronger than Eve for 2 purposes, not so he could abuse her, dominate her, or control her live.
• To be a provider
• To be a protector
Eve = life giver, the root word of “woman” in Hebrew is to be soft. She is created softer, cuddlier, but not inferior to Adam.
Here’s an example, silk is weaker than canvas, but not inferior to it. Porcelain is weaker than steel but not inferior to it. You can’t drink tea from a sledge hammer!
Did you know?
• 40% of a man’s body is muscle and 25% of a woman’s body is muscle.
• There are 1½ gallons of blood in a man’s body. There is 4/5 of a gallon of blood in a woman’s body. A woman doesn’t have as many capillaries carrying blood to the skin service, that’s why they get so much colder than men.
Who is superior? Neither - celebrate the difference!
2. The Tortoise And The Hare.
We all know the story! Men are like the rabbit and women are like the tortoise. Men have more energy but she has a lot more stamina and durability! How do we know this? Women have a black belt in shopping!
We would do good to learn the weaknesses and strength of our spouse!
3. The Romantic And The Mechanic.
Men we have a job to get done – dress the garden! Hard outer shell
Women are the caressers, child bearers. Romance doesn’t always come easy for men! We’re wired differently!
Women, your husband may never be as romantic as you – he may have been before you got married, but soon after he had a brain transplant!
Notice the book or magazines women and men look at:
Women: “How To Develop Closeness With Your Mate”, “Harmony in Marriage”, “How To Achieve Intimacy”, “How To Kiss Better”
Men: “How To Be A Champion Bass Fisherman”, “How Not To Get Hooked”
On T.V. – “Man vs. Wild” and the “Hallmark Channel”!
Go to any school campus and watch how girls carry their books – like their carrying a baby! A boy just swings them around if he has any at all! Give a girl a few dollars and she’ll buy a Barbie, give a boy a few dollars and he’ll buy a lizard!
4. The Radar And The Computer.
Men are the computer and women are the radar!
A USA Today article called, “Two Minds” describes the differences between the brains of men and women. Scientifically they are now showing us what we’ve known all along – most men use the left side of their brain and women use both sides of their brain! Men we really do have half a brain!
The left side: logical, reasoning
The right side: creativity, sympathy and emotions
Did you know this fact: a women’s brain is larger on average than a man’s? Autopsies show this! Maybe this explains a woman’s intuition!
A Harvard Medical Researcher studied preschoolers playing on the playground. He noticed that girls completed more sentences and communicated more then boys. He noticed that the boys made more sounds…
