These are the statues which the Lord commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, and between a father and his daughter in her youth in her father’s house. (Numbers 30:16)
I understand the emotion of the old adage, “Your son is your son until he takes a wife. Your daughter is your daughter for the rest of your life.” There is a difference between a son and a daughter. God has never intended that there be a unisex attitude between a man and a woman. To ignore the God-given differences between men and women is not only foolish, but also dangerous. God’s design is not flawed. When we attempt to place man in the position of a woman or a woman in the place of a man, we pervert God’s order. The so-called liberation of women in our day is, in reality, the bondage of women. Likewise, the feminizing of men weakens the stability of the family, and society as a whole. When you turn upside-down God’s order, you will have an upside-down, confused world. May the Lord restore His order to our families, marriages, churches and society through a right-side-up obedience to the Word of God.
