MOMMY TALK: The Double Standard or WHAT ARE YOU TEACHING YOUR SONS?

MOMMY TALK
I’m telling my daughters
“marry a man who will love you
the same way that he loves the Church.”
and
“If he neglects the Church,
he will eventually neglect you.”
I tell them,
“if a man will keep his word to God,
he will also keep his word to you.”
I sure would love personally
for some man to whisper in my ear…
“my mom taught me
to love the church
so that I could one day
know how to love
a beautiful woman like you.” (Ephesians 5:25)
And I’m teaching my daughters
“a man who loves a woman
the way Christ loved the
church would be very easy
to honor and respect.”(Ephesians 5:33)
Now,
what
are you mommies
telling
your sons?
