"If we have a skewed image of what it means to be a man, it affects everything: our family, our friends, our future, our legacy. A man's ability to lead a woman spiritually is completely dependent on his ability to follow Jesus."And there you have it. The best man is the one who has the ability to lead a woman spiritually. But I suggest this is the problem with much Christian practical theology today: it separates serving God from serving the person. It sees these two things as distinct and divided. This ultimately leads to the polarizing prioritization of serving God over serving others. Instead, I believe that all love comes from the same place. There is not one kind of love for God and another for my wife. They are one in the same. This is what keeps false and destructive notions of male dominance and feminine weakness away from human interaction and healthy relationships.
