10 things that have a gender

I keep finding these things in archives. I'm trying to clean out my files... I keep getting side-tracked. Does that ever happen to you? 

I have no idea who wrote this...

You may not know that many nonliving things have a gender.
For example"
1) Ziploc Bags -- They are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
2) Copiers -- They are Female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.
3) Tires -- Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.
4) Hot Air Balloon -- Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there's the hot air part.
5) Sponges -- Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.
6) Web Page -- Female, because it's always getting hit on.
7) Subway -- Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick up people.
8) Hourglass -- Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
9) Hammer -- Male, because it hasn't changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.
10) Remote Control -- Female.... Ha! You thought it'd be male! But -- it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying


I find it so very delightful that women and men are so different. Scarlett's papa once told her, "Just being male and female is opposite enough." That is such a true statement. If we yoke ourselves to someone so totally different than us, then we are unequally yoked.

When we yoke with someone who had Jesus as LORD, then the oppositeness of the other translates into a oneness in Christ. He prayed for that you know.

 John 17:20  And I do not pray concerning these only, but also concerning those who will believe in Me through their word; 21  that all may be one, as You are in Me, Father, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22  And I have given them the glory which You have given Me, that they may be one, as We are One: 23  I in them, and You in Me, that they may be perfected in one; and that the world may know that You sent Me and loved them, even as You loved Me. 

How incredibly astounding that Jesus not only thought of us and all Believers, He prayed for us, that we may be perfected in one so that the world would know God sent His Son because He so loved us and He loved Jesus. Now there is a sermon!
