The Aggressors And The Responders

Men are the aggressors, ladies are the responders. Men are supposed to woo ladies. 

The problem is that most men stop wooing their wives immediately after the wedding, and then wonder why the spark, the laughter, and the joy disappear from their wives’ faces. Well, the reason is obvious. You have to keep doing what you did before the wedding to sustain the marriage after the wedding! 

In the beginning, Adam was the aggressor. Eve said nothing and just watched while she was being “toasted”

And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. (Genesis 2:23 KJV)

As a single lady, don’t take the lead in asking a man out. It is not scriptural. You will be found, trust God on that. Don’t manipulate and don’t be suggestive so that the guy will not take advantage of you. Men are hunters by nature; don’t tamper with that “hunter” in him! Let him value you by coming after you.

The man who is not ready to “chase” and “woo” is not worth it.

Why is this so important?

Wooing is a lifetime assignment, even for husbands after marriage. If you want to keep the fire of your marriage burning, keep wooing your wife. It is a potent principle! The source of a thing is often time the sustenance of that thing.

Whatever you did to her while you were “toasting” her should not be stopped after marriage. If you wrote letters, keep writing. If you bought flowers, keep buying. If you used to take her out and her eyes would brighten up, you shouldn’t wonder why she has been downcast when you have not taken her out in six months!

Good morning!
