Functionally DYSfunctional: Week 4

FAMILY: Functionally DYSfunctional

Week 4: Uniquely Different

Genesis 1:27, Ephesians 5:21-33

So God created human beings in his own image.

In the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

God’s original design:

Man and Woman are created as equals in value.

Man and Woman are created with uniquely different roles.

God’s design:

Woman would be a confident helper for her husband. (life-giver)

Sinful distortion:

Woman became an insecure partner with a desire for control.


Where do you get your identity? 

What story do you believe about yourself?

God’s design:

Man would take responsibility and lead his wife.

Sinful distortion:

Man became a prideful coward with a desire to rule.


Are you taking responsibility for your life?

Are you leading your family?


And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21

So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5:31-33
