Sometimes, I sit and wonder why living habits, trends and living standards never change. I live in a world where there is more technology and freedom than my parents had during their young adulthood. I have always wondered what people are thinking when they do things they know are wrong such as killing someone or stealing something. Sometimes it is very hard to see things from other people’s point of view. The differences in our minds, ages, and personalities, When I look at my parents I see someone I look up to someone I admire.
My grandparents are a whole other story. I was sitting in my grandparent’s living room having dinner; my grandmother was walking around not eating seeing if she could get anything for anyone. She did everything for us. Especially my papaw she does everything for him fixes his dinner, his drink, lays out his clothes, it’s like she’s his servant. Do not misunderstand me. When I marry I will do everything for my husband. But I expect a certain amount of respect in return the bible says in Colossians 3:19“Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them”. My papaw does respect my grandmother but not enough in my opinion.
So as you can see this is due to our generational gap. When my grandma was a young woman she was expected to marry have children and care for the home. This day in age it doesn’t matter, more and more women would rather stay single then cook and clean for her husband. They would prefer to “play the field” and that’s fine so long as you are rooted and grounded in the word of God. The bible says in Hebrew 13:4 “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” In other word keep yourself pure for your husband or wife!
