I am going off the regular IT beaten path to share something I learned this past weekend. I had the pleasure of hearing a Christian speaker that shared some information with me that would help in future relationships that I choose to have.
The Bible says that Adam (the first man) was given a woman by the name Eve (the first woman) because God felt man should not be alone. Eve was formed from a rib that was taken from Adam.
Now a days, there are men and there are what some have labeled dogs. Men, like Adam, are looking for their “Eve” (a rib) while dogs are looking for their next “hit and run” (a bone). The Christian speaker shared a list with me that I will now share with you (to the best of my memory), see below.
|Out to get hers|
|Attacks a man’s vulnerabilities|
|Invests totally in children|
|Makes herself look good|
|Can be picked up any time of day|
|Out to get ours|
|Protects husbands vulnerabilities|
|Builds up home|
|Invests in husband (brings children into purpose of home)|
|Makes husband look good|
|A treasure to be found|
Notice how there is no mention of husband on bone’s side. But, there is still hope for bones to learn how to be ribs, just like there is hope for dogs to evolve into men.
3 things men need in there life: A “Father”, “Friend” and “Son”. These can equate to a mentor, someone for encouragement/accountability and someone to pour in to.
