I used to think that man and women were equal. When I heard so many leaders of the church praising their wives as being more spiritually mature then they were, I would cringe in disbelief.
My wife seemed to be not as mature spiritually when we first were married. It seemed I was always picking her up, trying to set the example and leading the way.
But just like a sleeping giant she arose one day. Just as if she was always a spiritual giant who was just asleep for a while, resting for the next challenge at hand. Me!
She is awake now, loving, kind, compassionate, understanding, nurturing, always abounding in good works. Yes, she has left me behind spiritually in leaps and bounds. She is a true mother of God's children and I am in awe.
Thanks to all you worthy women who follow Christ. Maybe the world does not know who you really are, but I do, and most importantly, Christ does!
