Rough & Tough Macho-Man

Take a look at this video. Do you still think women are the “weaker-vessel”? Think again rough and tough-macho-man! The phrase “weaker-vessel” most likely does NOT and will NOT ever mean what you think it does, nor probably what you would ever want it to be.

Likewise husbands dwell with then according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife as the “weaker vessel” and as being heirs together of the grace of life… — 1 Peter 3:7

The word “honor” is from the Greek word timao, a word that carries the idea of something so valuable that it is held as precious, prized, cherished, treasured, valuable and very dear. Peter uses the word in this verse to speak to a husband who values his wife highly, holds her in honor; treats her graciously; esteems her; handles her respectfully; and treats her like a prized treasure that is very precious to him.

As Peter continues exhorting husbands to treat their wives with special care, he makes one statement that unfortunately is often misunderstood. He tells husbands that they are to give honor unto the wife as unto the “weaker vessel”.

The word “weaker” does not mean inferior or substandard. This is the Greek word asthenes, which actually carries the idea of something that is fragile and of great value like a priceless, beautiful, hand-painted porcelain vase that must be treated with supreme care. Furthermore, the word “vessel” is from the Greek skeus, which presents the idea of a vase or treasure so rare and valuable that it should be treasured, cherished, highly-prized, and handled with special care.

Unfortunately, men treat their wives like a bucket that is to be thrown under the kitchen sink or used in the barn to milk the cows! They don’t comprehend that their relationship with their wife is the most precious relationship that exists in their lives.
