The impetus for this post came from an insurance commercial and a walk down the “princess aisle” at Hobby Lobby.
My Little Princess
Believe me, I get it. I have three daughters, so I am keenly aware of the need to make them feel special.
As a matter of fact, I have been known to go out of my way – actually, it really wasn’t – to make it known my girls are royalty. I have purchased the pink crowns, gone to the banquets, done the “daddy dances,” and participated in the high teas and fingernail polishing.
Every Dad should treat his daughter like a princess.
But What About Boys?
I shouldn’t have to elaborate very much because most of you probably already know how maligned the average male is in society, especially if he resembles anything masculine. However, society has yet to recognize the extent of the damage inflicted upon it by a radically-feministic and anti-gender agenda.
An anti-masculine paranoia has left men confused, scared, and spineless. Heck, even car insurance commercials (Liberty Mutual) tout the praise of coverage that can take care of teen boys who don’t know how to change a flat tire!
Proverbs 31 – It’s Not Only About Women
Now, whenever you think of Proverbs 31, what do you think about? The perfect woman? The high bar that is set for any woman who wants to be a model wife? Do you get stressed out with all of the expectations a male society is placing upon you?
Have you ever stopped to consider that Proverbs 31 starts out with a mother warning her son about other women? Have you ever noticed that the first few verses of Proverbs 31 contain words of affirmation…to a MAN?
Speaking of the tempting women and “strong drink,” this wise and caring mother warns,
“It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings…” (Prov. 31:4).
What we need these days are more women like King Lemuel’s mother. We need women who will teach their sons about morality, ethics, duty, honor, responsibility, leadership, and genuine love…because they are kings.
We need parents who will pull the plug on the raw sewage put out by the likes of Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj (I’m attaching a link to prove my point – viewer beware), and say, “It’s not for kings, my son, it is not for kings.”
The enemy doesn’t want to encourage biblical womanhood any more than he wants to encourage biblical masculinity.
So, empower your little princess; she’s truly precious.
But don’t forget about your prince; we need real men, too.
