I have just spent the day with a couple of friends spinning wool. We call it our spinning day and it happens a couple of times a year. Usually, during the holidays, we take our children and they have a good time together, today mine stayed home with Dad and the others were at school.
Now I enjoy these days to a certain extent. Let me explain – I love spinning wool, I enjoy it and it is a bit of a passion. I mainly enjoy the company of my friends, I enjoy nattering away while we spin or knit, but I don’t like the way my friends disrespect their husbands or men in general.
I love my husband (see here) and I try with all my being to respect him especially when I talk about him.
In my bible in Genesis 1:27 God says that he created man in His image, if this is the case (and it definitely is) why would I say things about my man that weren’t respectful.
You know how it goes, you hear it just about everywhere you go:
- I can do that better than any man;
- Men just don’t understand;
- Men don’t have any common sense;
- My man just dragged a heap of dirt inside and I had to clean it up;
- How many men does it take to screw in a light globe…
and so on and so on – I think you get the idea!!
It just breaks my heart to hear them talk about their husbands like that especially when it is something I try so hard not to do.
Now my problem is do I say something or not. I really should say something to encourage them to stop but I find this so difficult so maybe I am guilty of the same thing because I don’t stop it.
Please Lord help me to stand up and say something, help me find the right words.
Let us remember who we are talking about, and who created them in His own image.
Let us bless the men in our lives whether our husbands, brothers, fathers or sons.
