Who is more spiritual, men or woman?
Okay, I’m not going to answer that question – I’m not that crazy! But I would like to discuss what I see as difference in how men and women relate to things spiritual. It seems to me that woman are more spiritually aware/sensitive. I think this is why many churches have far more women than men in regular attendance. I have heard it suggested that woman being more aware, means they are more likely to follow something wrong. If woman are more likely to respond to spiritual things, the logic seems valid. Of course the other side of that is that ignoring the spiritual completely is an error, and an error that men are more likely to make.
For me this is like most things in marriage: our gender differences mean that we will do better together than either of us can do alone. We cover each others weaknesses, and benefit from each others strengths.
