“7You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.” 1 Peter 3. When a woman is fragile and depressed, she is desperate and controlling. A strong man will not bow to this in a woman. By his confident strength, she will feel secure and settle down. And she will thrive as a woman. If the man who is designed to be less emotional and strong, who is the wife and children to lean upon for security if he is weak? If a man is sitting around looking at porn and is continually distracted with drink and games, he does not engender confidence when the women and children are vulnerable. A woman who is carrying a child in her womb is vulnerable. She needs to know she and her child will be safe and taken care of. But a weak man will leave her in fear and worry. So men need to draw near to God and be the kind of men who women can be vulnerable with. She is the weaker vessel. Love her and take care of her. Do not make her worry that you don’t have what it it takes. “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” 1 Tim. 5:8. God didn’t tell women to take care of the men. But men are told to take care of and provide for their family. Make your women strong by being strong.
