Genesis 3:16 (ESV)
The Fall (Part 5 – Woman’s Punishment)
the woman he said,
“I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing;
in pain you shall bring forth children.
Your desire shall
be for your husband,
and he shall rule over you.”
The punishment on woman often focuses on the pain in childbearing. I see the lesser talked about punishment as the one that women tend to detest the most:
“Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” Need I say more? I will stop and keep it short… and not say anything. Whatever I do say… just leads to trouble!
I pray: O
Lord, I know you discipline us for our own good. Help us to receive your punishment in a good and edifying way. Help shape us according to your will. Amen.
