Are men from Mars and women from Venus? No. The earth is in fact the home base for both sexes. So why are we so different? Because God created us that way. Men and women were created with radically different ways of thinking, feeling, and perceiving. But when we check the Bible, we see that God never intended these differences to create the incredible friction they do today. The good news is that God has already woven into His Word the perfect solution to this friction.
Pastor, author, and conference speaker H. Dale Burke’s book, Different By Design, is aimed at exposing the myth that men and women are too different to live in harmony. He contends that God’s master plan includes harmony between men and women in marriage. When the inevitable struggles come into a relationship, Burke states that we need heavenly, down-to-earth biblical guidance for building healthy relationships. We all want to build stronger relationships, whether we’re single, dating, married, or passing along advice to grandkids. Different By Design provides an excellent framework within which to achieve that goal. Our differences do not surprise God. He wired us. He understands. He loves us. And He provides us with a map to navigate these tricky waters.
