Men, how do you view women? All women. Your mom. Your wife. Your daughter. Loved ones. Women you work with or worship with. Women you like and those you don't. Women you find attractive and those you don't. Older women and younger women. Do women exist as an object to you? Are they a commodity to you? Do you see women as something to get what you want out of them, use them up, and then dump them?
Do women exist to give you something? Are you a taker when it comes to women? Throughout history, all over the world, women have struggled to be seen and valued as equal to men.
When Jesus was alive in the first century, women were propertythey were owned. Palestinian Hebrew women were among the poorest in the world. They couldn't survive financially unless they were connected to a man. Jewish girls were married off very young and weren't allowed to choose who they married. Their fathers would choose. For the rest of her life, men would make decisions for a Jewish woman: her father, her husband, or a male relative of her husband if she was a widow.
Any money a woman earned belonged to her husband. They were not allowed to divorce their husbands but could be divorced for anything from burning the dinner to adultery. If a man divorced a woman then, it was financially disastrous for her.
Jewish men were not to greet women in public. Some leaders taught that women should never leave the home except to go to the synagogue. Women were responsible for bearing the children, rearing them, and maintaining a hospitable home. Religion: Men were required to pray certain prayers daily, but women were not. Men were Wives want sex Ribera to see the study of Scripture as extremely important for men but women were not allowed to study the sacred texts. In synagogues, they were separated from the men and not permitted to read aloud.
Legal Standing: Women were not normally accepted as witnesses in Jewish law.
If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
Jesus introduced something new. Something that went beyond just keeping the rule of not having sex with anyone other than your wife. Jesus is saying that it is possible to never commit adultery - to keep the rule - but still look at women in a way that is just as destructive.
Jesus was inviting them to leave their old ways of seeing women as an object to satisfy the needs and wants of a man and to see them in a brand new way. They had missed the point! On Dec. On their fifth attempt, the plane under the control of Orville, embarked on a second flight. He told her that was nice, and he would be sure to put something in the paper regarding the boys.
Your culture isn't going to help you with this.
Our culture can get confused on this, on one hand wanting to empower women but at the same time celebrating images of women that play into viewing them as an object. How often do you see a woman's academic achievement, business leadership, or emotional intelligence celebrated over her beauty, body, and sex appeal in movies, music, commercials, television shows, and social media?
When was the last time your hand sinned all by itself? Without your wrist, elbow, shoulder, etc. Your hand cannot sin by itself. If it can, cut it off. When was the last time your eyes caused you to sin by themselves? If they can, get rid of them. What is it that causes you, as a man, to view women as an object or property and not your equal?
Your thinking. Maybe the way you were raised. You didn't intend it. Some of you have been married for a long time and view your wife as your property. You may say things like "You're MY wife" as if you own her. Some of your wives may have gone along with that for years and you are quite comfortable in your lifestyle because of it - you depend on her staying in her place, serving you - just like your depend on your eyes or your right hand. So if that's what's causing you to mistreat women, Jesus invites you to cut it off, Wives want sex Ribera it out.
He invites you to leave that way of thinking and to see her as made in the image of God, your equal, and someone that Jesus died for, just like you. Honor women. Think of the woman that you most admire in the world, it could be from the past. How would you treat her if she came to your home to share a meal with you?
Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered. Honestly and carefully evaluate how you see women. Are you surprised when you meet a woman whose command of language or speech or writing is of the highest order?
Do you entertain yourself with erotic imagery, including social media? Do you assume that when you are around a woman in a home environment that she will do the cooking, cleaning, or care for the children? Do you joke or make comments about women being incapable, stupid, or weak? Are female CEOs, political leaders, or women leading in the church, threatening to you?
Do you expect the women in your life to look after you, cook for you, clean for you, do your laundry for you, remember Wives want sex Ribera family's birthdays for you, sort all the bills, write all the Christmas cards and be there to listen to you complain?
Do you expect special recognition when you do any of this woman's work? Do you expect sex from your wife on your terms, including when and how you want it? Do you put down or ridicule or count as less valuable, the dreams, ideas, hobbies, appearance, or talents of women? Do you use the word "crazy" or "psycho" when you're talking with a woman and she disagrees with you, gets emotional, or has a different viewpoint than yours? Do you try to control the women in your life? Are all the problems in your life because of women?
Ask God to help you see women, all women like He does. Scripture teaches that life transformation comes through changing the way you think. Single guys, if you can learn to treat women this way, you will be a unicorn and in very high demand. Married guys, what would happen in your marriage and family, if you did this? What would happen to the Church, if word got out that all women are treated with honor, dignity, and love by Jesus-followers?
One of the reasons the Jesus movement grew so much is that women wanted to be part of a community that valued them and held them in such high esteem. Maybe that can happen again. Aug 18 Written By Stephen Ulibarri. Stephen Ulibarri.Wives want sex Ribera
