In the beginning, God created Eve for Adam and Adam for himself. There is a structure that exists between the man and the woman that guarantees happiness and love. The man is to be the head of the woman as Christ is the head of the church. I once thought it seemed unfair until I dug a little deeper into the word…
The man of God abides by a certain standard. Not saying he is perfect, but he does have the ability for perfection. If he shall slip from perfection, he can easily navigate his way to regain his stance.
The man of God is patient. His priority is to find an understanding of different points of view. He is slow to react, which ensures that conflict is not in his view. He will want to know the situation to find the best possible outcome. The man of God is peaceful, and comforting to be around. He is compassionate. He wants the best for those he touches, he chooses to heal suffering with love.
“Wherefore, my beloved brethern, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:”James 1:19
The man of God is forgiving. His main priority is to get along with everyone. He isn’t one to argue, but leave each man their own perspective. He isn’t one to hold a grudge, he will simply give all wrongdoings to God inevitably dismissing them personally. He is understanding, he will lead by example.
“Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man a quarrel against any as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.”Colossians 3:13
The man of God has an enormous amount of inner strength. He has no reason to fear because he knows that anything that comes his way is for the greater good. He will lift others up, for he knows the bad is only temporary. He is highly intelligent, he knows what is needed in order to overcome any obstacle. He has enough faith to get through any storm because through God he can see the rainbow.

The man of God is honest. He will tell you the truth always. He knows how to handle the truth in a loving manner. He strives to do what’s right in order to ensure that he can be trustworthy. He is trusting, he understands that everyone has bad in them but he chooses to focus on the good.
A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.”Proverbs 13:5
The man of God is generous, he knows that everything he gives he will receive. He gives his heart to lift up the fallen. He gives resources if he has the opportunity to do so. He gives hope. He gives life. He gives strength. He is the man that people have no choice but to look up to.
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”1 Timothy 4:12
There is a reason that God made the woman for the man. The man has the strength to see the family through. He has the strength to allow the woman to be weak. He is focused on his duty. He will strive to make sure his family is safe, loved, and protected. The man of God is secure, he has a strong stance. He is trustworthy and intelligent. He has no reason to doubt or fear. He is confident because he knows that he is safe.
