God-designed delights of womanliness
We have recently been thinking about guys and girls, their roles in the world and the ways they should relate to each other. Here is a quote from Mrs. Jennie Chancey who is a homeschooling lady from the states. She says:
“Our world desperately needs to see the beautiful antithesis that is the gospel. Christians need to declare to the lost that femininity is a wonderful part of the image of God: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). As our culture drifts into greater androgyny, what an opportunity we have to show the God-designed delights of womanliness! We need young women who cherish their purity and desire to honour their parents through chaste behaviour, speech and dress. We need girls of character who cultivate their minds and emotions to reflect God’s design with joy, intelligence and delight.”
Some questions for thought and discussion:
1. How can ladies make practical efforts to show "the God-designed delights of womanliness"?
2. How can we practically make a clear declaration to the lost that godly femininity is a wonderful part of the image of God?
3. What does the bible say about this issue?
