Yes, this isn’t about me as a father to my brothers, but it’s a pondering into just what the Father should desire for His daughter.
I think of what I need for my three brothers; for them not to be responsible adults and loving and respectful partners, but to be respected and safe and loved and cherished by the men in their lives; by all men in society – and all girls.
As a man I very well understand how men think and the way they feel and the challenges that a person faces only in treating women with the respect they deserve; that humanity deserves. I understand as a pastor, a counsellor, and as a chaplain just how much I’ve fallen short in my thoughts and feelings and activities, as a guy I mean.
I rationalised that, in endeavouring to live a godly life, I still struggle to reach to the criteria of thought, feeling, and action that I’d love to meet. I am quite fortunate that the women near me have been gracious in understanding that although my intent reveals possible, my deployment is sometimes awry.
In recent days I have seen attacks on feminism like every man who speaks up for females in society has dropped for some trick. These people against’feminism’ are deluded. Naturally, violence against anyone is unacceptable, and girls aren’t immune from being violent, but guys own the bet in how to proceed if the world has any hope beyond violence.
I find it a ridiculous argument that men denounce women’s rights to security when they use an aggression cloaked in all kinds of vile apparatus, including inappropriate humour that’s supposed to be amusing but is just disgusting. And feeble women join in. Some of us are beyond enjoying anyone.
What must the Father need for His daughter?
Certainly, he needs His daughter to be treated like she’s a princess. Because she’s a princess.
Does a man eliminate anything for treating a girl like a princess?
Where’s the chivalry gone that says,’I choose to treat you as amazing for who you’re’
And that’s only the earthly father. Needless to say, we could ask what the Father desires for his son, and the Father must want his son to flourish as the protector of life, and to revere the Father’s glory at the girls about him.
To be correctly egalitarian, I think it’s crucial we get the sex differences right.
They follow their guys, always desiring their guys to lead by means of protection and respect. I know few women who would be capable of abusing guys for the want of it. Sure, I’ve seen women that are capable of abusing men, and I wonder what role men have played in the creation of those in question. Men aren’t blameless.
The Father desires the best for His daughter.
The Father demands that His daughter be adored by being respected. The Father wants no fear against His daughter. The Father expects that His daughter could flourish. Along with the Father promises to journey with His daughter.
And when we care anything about God we need to do His will.
