…Because it doesn’t snow between the kitchen and the bedroom.
I hate kitchen jokes…….it implies that woman are inferior and are meant only to take care of their husbands; albeit, as Christian women, God asks us to do so.
After growing-up in an abusive household, my image of what a dominant male figure should be was skewed. Then, after the divorce of my parents, I acquired a sense of necessity to be a strong woman; my mother was alone in this world, and so I needed to be strong for her– for me.
I began to believe that it was only a sexist prejudice produced by society that said females were inferior and must submit to the superior man. Yet, God tells us that to glorify him we must let go of our pride, and of our need, and to submit to our husbands.
1 Peter 3: 1
“ 1 In like manner you married women, be submissive to your own husbands- subordinate yourselves as being secondary to and dependent on them, and adapt yourselves to them. So, that even if any do not obey the Word, they may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of their wives.”
Again, God asks us to sacrifice for his sake, so that EVERYTHING we do glorifies Him.
I have dimples. That is all you need to know. Just kidding. I am Jeli. In the past year I have undergone a lot of life-altering events in which my faith has really benefited. I have learned a lot about what I have done wrong and what I should do right. That is why I am here, on TAYA. I want to tell you guys about those things that I did wrong, and to brainstorm ideas with you all on how to do right. So venture with me, think with me, and pray with me. :) Let's do this thing!
