“Real Men Love Strong Women” by Paul Maxwell
I loved this! So well said. You can click to read, if you like. Kirk Cameron is on a marriage tour, advocating for marriage all over the place, and he posted this article on facebook the other day.
Paul Maxwell poses a really good question and makes a great statement, “The real question we need to ask is: Do we want women to be weak? And the answer must forever be, on the basis of Scripture, “May it never be.” “
May it never be, indeed.
He goes on to say, “men have two choices: to find female strength captivatingly attractive, or to be insecure and intimidated.” Amen to that! The solution is always to become stronger, more self assured, more confident of your own abilities, not to try to tear women down as if that will ever elevate your own sense of worth. I sometimes say, you can’t shrink someone else thinking it will make you bigger.
It takes strong women to love strong men. It takes all of us being strong together to spread the good news and to represent Jesus Christ to those who need to know Him.
There can be some real misconceptions about what it means to have a gentle, quiet spirit. Let me tell you, it sure ain’t for the faint of heart.
“There is nothing is so strong as gentleness, and nothing is so gentle as true strength.”
