The differences between men and women were intended to give us a tactical advantage, enabling married couples to cover each other’s backs, but the enemy seeks to exploit those differences to undermine our unity. Satan tempts wives and husbands to fight head-to-head against each other. God wants us to learn to battle back-to-back against the real enemy, defending each other’s greatest areas of vulnerability with our unique strengths.
