I was just reading Boy Meets Girl by Josh Harris and I came across this quote I just had to stop and write down. Guys, especially those of you who really know how to show genuine respect and care for girls, you’re gonna love this quote. The author mentioned this quote in attempt to drive home a point about why God created male and female, and this quote in particular emphasizes on why Eve was made:
Eve was not taken out of Adam’s head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him”
I gotta say when I read that quote, I just had re-read that quote, put down my book and just smile and marvel to myself. That quote is absolutely spot on, and it just encompasses everything that we as males feel about our female companion. I have never subscribed to the whole male machonism theory becuase I have seen first hand how it can fail and ruin a relationship. Yet I still believe we men were made to be initiators, to pursue and woo women, and at the same time learn to treat them with equal dignity and respect; we were made to protect them with our strength and yet love them with all our hearts.
It’s amazing how beautiful love can be, when you look at it from God’s angle.
