When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.      1 Corinthians 13:11 

In our culture women are presented as a commodity. Through television, the internet, advertising, the message men receive from women every days is: Take me. Use me. Do whatever you want to with me. Then, discard me or trade me in for another one.

Consequently, we have a bunch of people in men's bodies who think like little boys. Andy Stanley wants to help change the way you think about women.

The idea of women being a commodity is less strange in the first century than it is now. In Roman culture women had no status, men had multiple wives, some women were slaves, the business of prostitution was not only legal, it was encouraged.

Jesus gave a new command in John 13, "love one another just as I have loved you." In this video Andy Stanley explains how Jesus and his disciples taught the first church how they are to love and honor women.
