Difference between men and women need to be address because it is important in the communication process. When couples learn these are normal differences they can then begin to accept each other rather than an attempt to change each other.
Man and woman were created both in the image of the LORD God. (Genesis 1:27). The uniqueness of Eve comes from knowing she is the only one that was created from a point of enhancement from Adam. Eve was created, not from the earth but was fashioned from the living tissue of the rib of Adam by the very hand of the LORD God.
It is important for women to remember that they are created equal with man. Women are love by the LORD God just like men are loved. Women are thinking, reasoning, and functioning creations just like men. Women have a relationship with the LORD God just like men do.
Both Adam and Eve sinned and disobeyed the LORD GOD and had to face the consequences of their sin. They faced the consequences of their sin and took the responsibility for their action. Just because they fell into sin the LORD God continued to love them. He loved mankind so much He sent Jesus Christ into our lives for; the forgiveness of sin, and the chance to have the relationship with the LORD God, to be an example to us by preaching the gospel to the poor, heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recover the sight to the blind and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18-19).
With that being said let’s look at some of the differences between men and women. Recognizing some of the differences may help women and men to have a more intimate relationship with each other. Men are usually more achievement oriented, solution-focused, goal oriented. Men are more apt to communicate information rather than feelings. Men usually withdraw when they do experience feelings around conflict.
Things that can be done to help men and women, especially those in the role of husbands and wives, are to become aware of the differences between them. Give a helping hand to the men who are overwhelmed. It would be helpful to express one feeling at a time. Deal with one issue at a time and keep it simple.
Since men are solution orientated they need to be told what women want them to do with the emotions they share. If you are crying and upset you might tell them they need to bring you a handkerchief, or leave you alone until you are finished crying. You might suggest them to pray for you, or just hold you. They need solutions.
Men do not like to be asked what they are feeling. Women are good about analyzing their feelings. Men are good about stating solutions focused things. It would be good to ask the man if he had achieved the things he had set out to do during the day. Then you, who like to analyze feelings, can understand the mood the man is in. Men are more apt to communicate information rather than feelings. Men usually withdraw when they do experience feelings around conflict. There is easier ways to get your husband or men friends to talk about his feelings than just bombarding him with your feelings and emotions. Our best girlfriends might be able to handle our emotions but men cannot. Women need to become more logical than more emotional.
Difference between men and women need to be address because it is important in the communication process. When couples learn these are normal differences they can then begin to accept each other rather than an attempt to change each other. Husbands do not think about his feelings. Husbands do not talk about their feelings. All men and women need acceptance, trust, admiration, and appreciation.
All men and women desire to have their emotional needs supplies. Needs like to be heard and known. The need to be affirmed for what you do is a need shared by both men and women. Someone telling you that you have done a great job. Both men and women need to be praised and just need to be wanted. Just to say I love you and need you is the beginning of any communication between couples.
Men and women are different yet similar. They are different in physical and sexual function, yet similar in needs and desires, different in form yet similar in the image of the LORD God. The challenge is to blend the differences into the balance and completion of one flesh and one soul. There is a struggle with living together we are made from the same substance, but in different forms. Both men and women are struggling to improve their relationship with the LORD God.
We have come from a fallen race both man and woman. Both man and woman desire to become closer to the creator and improve the relationship with Him. Jesus Christ desires we all become one with Him and the Father. “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” (John 17:21)
