How should men interact with and treat women who are not their wife? Scripture is crystal clear on this one:
Like mothers and sisters in all purity. Not sex objects.
I've been thinking about Paul's words to Timothy over the past few months as more public cases of sexual misconduct come to light.
Lord, help us as men care for, protect, and encourage the women in our lives as mothers and sisters, in all purity:
I Timothy 5:2 - Do not rebuke an older man but encourage him as you would a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, in all purity.
Men, how would you treat your mother? Your sister?
That is how we should treat women.
