The Day for Women to...

Today is the International Women's Day. Therefore, our hosts today were inviting the women to take this opportunity and tell the men exactly what they want.

My Human Opinion

Today we celebrate women. Mothers, wives, sisters, girlfriends, daughters, all women of the world. We salute you.

Now come on dear peoples. That question cannot be answered—exactly. What do women want? Everything? Nothing? Anything? Something? Who knows, even women are sometimes not sure what they want. I won't even offer an opinion here. Let's just read what the Bible says.

My Biblical Opinion

Genesis 1:26a and 27b
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominionover the fish of the sea...
So God created created man in His own image...male and female He created them.
In a nutshell, we are made in God's image. So, in the beginning, before the fall of mankind, our 'want' was to worship and fellowship with God.
Ecclesiastes 12:13
Let us hear the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments. For this is man's all.
However, we don't usually keep to this 'conclusion'!

And this leads me to what women want. Are you ready?
Genesis 3:16
To the woman He said:
"I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."

Well, this verse is usually misinterpreted, however, this is my take.
Women will desire relationships, read husband in the verse. She will desire to rule over her relationships, read husband. But her relationships, read husband, will rule over her. Rule in the sense of decisions, time, emotions, and in some cases rule quite literally.

Does this explain why women have difficulties in their relationships with men? I don't know.
But the conclusion of the matter is; whether you know what women want or not, celebrate the women in you life.
