Scripture says we are fearfully and wonderfully made and that God created us in His image male and female. We're equal in value, worth and dignity. He's also given us different roles and responsibilities. Men and women are equal BUT not the same. This includes some amazing and often funny things about how we're wired. Check out Mark Gungor's "Tale of Two Brains" - HERE

"Cruise Ship vs Battleship"
We could also say that for many men today Christian life is more a cruise ship rather than a battleship. Are you mostly interested in wanting your needs accommodated and having a comfortable experience? Or are you looking to be equipped for battle and deployed for action in enemy occupied territory? Cruise ships are created for the pleasure of those paying to sail with them. Everything on the ship is for comfort and emotional well being. There are lots of options for everything including what food you like, what shows you attend, and what activities you choose to do. The design of the ship is opulent and pleasing to the eyes. It seems everything shines and glimmers! Battleships on the other hand are built for mission, not for comfort. They are equipped with weapons of warfare. Every sailor knows why they are onboard and what their job is. There are places to sleep, shower and eat but the primary purpose of everything is to complete the mission.What ship are you on?

I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine that would attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved, lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,
