A Woman is not a Doormat


I came across this in my reading today and thought it to be a fantastic example of the woman’s role in marriage, as well as how a man ought to perceive and treat his spouse. From Matthew Henry’s commentary on Genesis 2:


That the woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.

  1. Oh I’m so proud of you Greg. More men need to realize this. :-). Gotta reblog this one.

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
