She deserves nothing less from you

from Inspirational Quotes to Live and Learn – on Facebook

Are you waiting for women to pull themselves up to equality?  “It’s coming soon!”  “I hope those groups get their act together.”

It doesn’t work like that.  The marginalised cannot do it by themselves. It requires men and women of good will to speak and act on their behalf.

If it’s going to happen it’s going to need your involvement. The women are your sister, your mother, your daughter, your wife.  She deserves nothing less from you.

Open

Mike Scott of The Water Boys

There was a time when:

Women were property,
girls were a financial burden,
women could not inherit or own property,
women were considered financially unproductive,

and today in India, foeticide is still evident by the decreasing female:male ratio.

And now, this is time when:

Women are equal but cannot lead at the front of church,
women can lead corporations, but not congregations,
women can speak on behalf of a nation but not on behalf of Jesus,
girls are told to follow their dream, except in pastoral care.

Things have changed but still the hatred of girls and women continues.

It’s time to be open.  Open to the change that is already here.

OPEN – Source

Open to the world
open to spirit
open to the changing wind
open to touch
open to nature
open to the world within
open to change
open to adventure
open to the new
open to love
open to miracles
open Beloved to You

Open to learn
open to laughter
open to being blessed
open to joy
open to service
open to saying “Yes !”
open to risk
open to passion
to peace and silence too
open to love
open to beauty
open Beloved to You
