An overview of our Sunday School Class on Marriage

- Different, Unique and Married -

Our Biology - Male vs Female
Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in His own image;
in His own image created He them: male and female He created them."

A. Physical
Our brains are literally created differently.

B. Relational
  • men think projects - women think relational
  • men compartmentalize - women 'stream' their day
  • men look at the big picture - women look at the details
C. Sexual make-up

1. View of sex. 
men are physical - women are relational
2. Motivation
men by sight - women by touch and feeling
3. Approach
men compartmentalize - women stream

The Curse
Genesis 3:14-19

man's is silence - woman's is control

When Woman (Eve) took and ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge (of good and evil) and gave it to Adam, she took control away from Adam and Adam remained silent to the commandment God gave him.
 This is the curse of men and women that is carried down through the ages of time.

What it Takes

A. Fairness
- fair to each other's built in differences
B. Forgiveness
of man's silence and woman's control

"A happy marriage is the union of two forgivers." - Ruth Graham

Wrap Up

We have a choice:
We can allow the differences in our biology to create conflict or we can celebrate
 the differences and blend them into a winning team!

What a very sweet post. I like what you learned about marriage, so true. We are created different, and celebrating the difference is what I love to do.
Hugs, Cindy
