A Note to Wives (or any women planning to be married)

The fact that the Bible has commanded the husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the church – faithfully and unconditionally, does not give women any excuse to be a pain in the neck.

You say that he should model Christ’s love regardless of how you act. Is that what you want?

Is that what Christ wants? 

Do you want your husband to be forced to seek supernatural power just to find a way to love you? 

Do you want to be another of his trials – his greatest example of overcoming adversity?

The home front should not be a spiritual battlefield; it should be the place where a man relaxes and can be vulnerable with the woman he cherishes.

  1. True. 🙂 And additionally, in response to this (related or unrelated), I suddenly remembered that one of God’s requirements for a church deacon/overseer in the New Testament is to be a man of one wife, etc… Put another way, wives are called to see to it that their husbands fulfill their calling and ministry by making home a blissful sanctuary – where husbands can be contented to be married to their one and only superwoman. :))
