Instructions to Men and Women.

DSC_0682-Edit

Therefore, I want men to pray everywhere by lifting up hands that are holy, without anger or argument. In the same way, I want women to enhance their appearance with clothing that is modest and sensible, not with elaborate hairstyles, gold, pearls, or expensive clothes.  They should make themselves attractive by doing good, which is appropriate for women who claim to honor God. A wife should learn quietly with complete submission. I don’t allow a wife to teach or to control her husband. Instead, she should be a quiet listener. Adam was formed first, and then Eve. Adam wasn’t deceived, but rather his wife became the one who stepped over the line because she was completely deceived. But a wife will be brought safely through childbirth, if they both continue in faith, love, and holiness, together with self-control” (1 Timothy 2:8-15). 

The bible is very clear about how men and women should behave and present themselves. Men, don’t be slow to anger or to engage in an argument. Women, there is no need to live a luxurious life full of gold, pearls, and expensive apparel. Both men and women must live a life for the Lord only glorifying the only God of the universe. Women, respect your husbands and in humility and submission, live a holy life. Men, don’t abuse of the authority that the god God has given you — never forget… “to whom much is given, much will be required” (Luke 12:48). 

Respect and above all love is what we all need. Thanks be to God.
