God’s Plan for the Man
“And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” Genesis 2:15
God gave women a nurturing instinct, but God gave men a different gift and task — to dress the garden. God equipped men with a hard exterior to be the providers and protectors, and because of this, men want to be admired by women.
Dr. Rogers responded to this by saying, “I want to be admired by my wife. I get more blessing when she admires me and says, ‘You are wonderful,’ and she gets a blessing when I am romantic, loving, and tender toward her.”
1 Peter 3:7 says, “Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [your wives] according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.”
- How can you show your wife a little tender loving care today?
- Now that you’ve thought of something, go do it!
