Husbands…love your wife!!

Posted: June 2, 2011 in Uncategorized

I love the way Eugene Peterson paraphrases Ephesians 5: 25-28 in The Message… “Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage.”

Lately, I have been overwhelmed with dealing with marriages that are falling apart.  Most of the time the husband does not comprehend this powerful scripture.  Men…listen to me…you will be amazed at how much your marriage will improve if you love your wife in this way.  Are you going all out in your love for her?  Are you giving more than you are getting?  Are you serving her?  Are you making your wife whole by what you do and say?  Are you evoking her beauty in everything you say about her or to her? Does your actions bring out the best in her?

Men, you will be amazed how things will change if you love your wife in this way.  Don’t keep score..just love!

    I agree wholeheartedly. Everyone deserves a brand new chance everyday. Just like jesus christ gives us. Keeping score on people’s wrong is just wrong. Everybody should make an effort to make daily amends and offer daily forgiveness.
