Hello dear sisters! I hope you have been enjoying week 2 of our study and learning God’s design for men. “Genesis presents God’s original design before sin entered the world and messed everything up. God’s ideal for men (and women) will never be perfectly attained in a fallen world. Yet, through Christ’s work on the cross, both men and women can be redeemed and find grace to live out their divine design.”
I’m excited to see what God’s design is for women in the coming weeks of our study!
Here are some discussion questions. You can share your thoughts and comments here, write them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you.
- In what way does the responsibility of man to take initiative mirror what Jesus does for the church?
- Can you think of an example of how a man might appropriately provide for or protect a woman who is not his wife?
- As you reflect on this week’s study on biblical manhood, what are some of the things you appreciate about God’s divine design for men?
On page 64 we were asked to compose a prayer, letter, or poem. Express your heart response to what you have studies. Personalize this week’s lesson in the way that will best help you apply them to your life. I would like to encourage you to do that!
We have a group of women meeting on Monday evening to do this very same study.Click here to watch a clip of our Monday night group discussing week 2.

I really enjoyed this week’s discussion, this is a really important concept to grasp for the health of our marriages and the church and even raising sons. To answer number 3, the more I learn about man’s role and the way God designed him, the more relief and freedom it gives me. I don’t have to be all those things because God gave me a partner. I am free to just do what He is asking of me and trust God to take care of the rest.
Thank you for doing the videos ladies, I feel like I’m right there with you!
Thanks Sandy! We are so glad you are doing the study with us. I liked your answer to question #3. This is where I think that when women begin to understand God’s design for men and women, we will appreciate that we don’t have all of that responsibility to carry on our shoulders. It is freeing.
