WIRED DIFFERENTLYMy husband said something in his sermon last Sunday that made me laugh...he said, and I'm paraphrasing, that God created men and women are of equal value but with distinctively different roles to fulfill... he simply stated that "we are wired differently!" I don't think I have to explain that to anyone, if we have had any contact with men, we know what that means!
Then to prove his point - without him even knowing it- I came across this in my linen closet.
I just had to laugh. My sweet husband is so good about housework! He can do it all-cook, clean, do laundry, you name it, he's done it! However, there are a few things that matter to me that are not as important to him. The way I fold towels is one of those things! I don't think I even have to point out which stack is mine and which one was his! I just spoke those words to myself..."wired differently" and left the towels the way they were. Hey, they are clean, put in the right place, and there were two less towels I had to wash and fold...who cares how they look!!
I'm am so thankful God did wire us different...what a dull and unfulfilled marriage we would have if we were created just like one another. The joy and ever growing attempt to know the man God gave me over 14 years ago keeps me dependent on the One who created him. For when I recognize that God crafted this fellow and that he has a specific role to fill, it is then will I love, honor, respect, submit & treasure him above all other men! Oh to value and recognize that on a daily basis...how often I fail!
