Stigma

Unto to the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee – Genesis 3:16.

Priority in Creation denotes man’s authority over woman. God could have created the woman first or both simultaneously, but He didn’t as it was always His intention for man to lead and woman to follow.

When God created marriage in the Garden of Eden there was no other woman or man in the Garden except for Adam and Eve, but even then God instructed the man to cleave to his wife (the woman should do likewise). To cleave is to adhere, to stick fast, as by suction or glue, to carry something out without deviation.

I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me – Philippians 4:13

I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments – Psalm 119:60

Often people mistake procrastination for “laziness”. They talk about it as if were some nasty character flaw. Procrastination has nothing to do with being lazy.
