This clip shared on Facebook by one of my dear friends, Ashlee Glock, reminded me of the sweet fellowship I shared last night and questions my small group girls and others (myself included) ask and wrestle with — this dilemma and fighting cultural standards and “modernism” in the way relationships work. Here’s a clip from Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church, answering the question: Should a woman pursue a man?
Some of my favorite quotes from this clip:
No, but she can tell him to get off the pot.
Too many Christian guys are cowards. That’s why so many non-Christian guys pursue Christian women, because those women are waiting for any men who will initiate leadership and courage.
So many guys say, “Well I don’t want to be rejected.” Well you know what? Being rejected is part of being a man.
