A Quick Word about International Women’s Day

By Dr. Mark Creech

So Thursday of this week was International Women’s Day. The website for International Women’s Day says its goal is “a more…gender equal world.”

That statement reminds me of something Milton Berle once said, “Any woman who wants equal rights with men has no ambition!” Berle also said, “It’s about time that women learned they were our equals. Men have been getting tired of women being their superiors.”

Of course, I’m just kidding around.

But in all seriousness, allow me to share a great quote from the late great Presbyterian minister, Peter Marshall, who was once the chaplain of the United States Senate.

In his famous sermon, “The Keeper of the Springs,” Marshall said of women:

“We hear about every other kind of women – beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated women, career women, talented women, divorced women, but so seldom do we hear of a godly woman – or a godly man either, for that matter. The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost their illusions and their faith. The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct.”

God give us such women.
