Treat the Younger Women like Sisters
I had to come to tell about the wonderful evening I had last night. Two of the young men in my church invited a couple of us round for dinner last night and truly treated us as their mother and sister respectively. First, they cooked a lovely meal which they served to us outside in a lovely garden with its views of rolling countryside and the sun shining down on us.

What most impressed me was that the gentle way they led our time together. Our conversation was on to topics of real importance and worth, like what God had done in our lives from before we knew him, to leading us to him, and how he impacted our lives now. We discussed, on their leading, the importance of biblical manhood and womanhood in the church and in relationships. We talked about how this should be acted out in our lives as people striving to be godly men and women. They encouraged us and challenged to continue in this way. Our evening closed with prayer for our lives now and for our future lives, and with thanksgiving to God for all he has and continues to do in our lives.

I was so encouraged to be in the presence of men who really want the same values. They are men who want to be the leaders in a relationship, not to browbeat their future wives, but to cherish and nourish them by meeting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. They really showed that gentle yet powerful leadership last night.

What struck me was how wonderful it was to be under that and to submit in some way to that leading. I pray for those men that they will encourage and treat other men to embrace biblical manhood and that the Lord will continue to build them up as godly men. I also pray for me and for my sisters that we will become women joyfully wanting to respond to that and that we too will be moulded more and more into God's image to fulfill our role as created by him in the very beginning.

Do not rebuke an older man but encourage him as you would a father. Treat younger men like brothers, older women like mothers, younger women like sisters, in all purity.
I Tim 5:1-2

This is a great post. As a single Christian woman I can really appreciate guys like the ones mentioned above. I hope that other guys will catch on. I think some of the girls I disciple in our youth and young adult groups doubt that guys like that even exist. I know I look for a man that I respect and trust enough to submit to. It is really refreshing to hear about your wonderful experience and to come across someone who recognizes and appreciates that type of behavior.

Sadly both these young men are leaving the country, but I think we need to pray that there are others like them out there!
