Watercolour pencil and ink, Janis Cox 2015

The ladybug can teach us many things. Just the term “lady” reminds us to watch how we act, speak and think. How do we treat others? What comes out of our mouths? We know the term lady but here is a definition from a dictionary:

a woman who is refined, polite, and well-spoken:

And for the men reading this post – are you acting as gentlemen?

Here is a definition of gentleman:

a civilized, educated, sensitive, or well-mannered man:

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15, NIV).

Be careful, then, how you live
Be wise,
Be filled with the Spirit
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.
Live as children of the light (selected passages from Ephesians 5).

Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it (Ephesians 5:, MSG).

Does this mean for women to act as ladies (Proverbs 31) and men to act as gentlemen?

I think so. What are your thoughts?

Tweetable:

Consider how you act and live. Instructions from God. (tweet this)
