Today we’re going to talk about a man in a woman’s world and I always call my husband a man of all men because that’s what he is to me. We are celebrating our … it’s gonna be 19 years this June, and we met in youth group. The great thing is that he’s 6 years younger than me, he turned 20 two weeks before we got married.
Dean and I have done ministry things together. He’s my biggest supporter, encourager and a wonderful husband to me. I always say I don’t think anyone can love me like Dean.
He’s also a great dad and he cares about lifting up the men in our lives. So today, we want to talk about how culture views men and why it’s harder being a man’s man today, especially in a woman’s world.
Why don’t you introduce yourself to the listeners and tell us a few things about you that we don’t know.
- The first question we’re going to tackle today is how would you describe a man of God?
2. Our culture sheds a negative light on men today through the message of feminism, the media, entertainment. One of the ways we see men being degraded is through the dumbing down dad portrayal of men on sitcoms and shows where the dad has no clue what’s going on in the family unit.
Do you think this is sending a message to people about the value placed on the man’s role in society and are the roles of men interchangeable?
3. Most Christian women want their men to be a spiritual leader but feel they’re coming up short. How do you explain and/or defend that?
4. When I wrote the Bible study, Reflections of Eve, you and I talked a lot about how Adam is also a reflection of men. In what ways is he a reflection of men in both his perfect created begin and his fallen nature.
5. What is your advice to women who might wonder how to help her man become the man God wants him to be?
