Are you stopping your wife from being a woman? December 12, 2012

Husbands, are you trying to be so much of a man that you aren’t letting your wife be a woman? After God created Adam, He declared that a “helper” was needed for the man. The term helper was not meant to lower the role of women because, in fact, God himself is called a “helper” many times in the Old Testament.

Many men have adapted to the American cultural ideal that a man should be independent, unemotional, and self-sufficient. One big problem is that we are robbing our women of the chance to be what God created them to be. Being the tough guy may actually be hurting your wife, not impressing her.

Perhaps it’s time for husbands to let your wife be the helper she was designed to be. Perhaps men need to learn that we truly do need our wives.
