Everyday Unbelieving Husband
It’s too bad that not all husbands are Christ followers, and do not love their wives as Christ loved the church, “a woman wrote me. “What happens to those wives,” she asked. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters.
Admittedly a woman who has a husband that doesn’t see God as his Father-in-law has it harder. And even though I do have a husband who knows and loves God there are times I just don’t feel very loving towards him especially when I don’t think he’s doing “his husband part.” And it’s a lot easier to point out my husband’s flaws than look at my own. But if I ask God to help me love and see Dan as God sees and loves him I’m able to “do right” rather than “be right.” In John 14:15 God asks me, “Do you love Me Debbie?” Yes, of course,” I say. “Then obey Me.” This doesn’t mean picking and choosing what I feel like obeying. I can love honor my husband when I have Christ’s strength and not my own…everyday.
