I love my husband dearly, I even like him so why do I sometimes judge him?
12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.
I don’t need to be the one that is putting my husband in chains, keeping him from being who he is. Who God made him to be! I shouldn’t be the one that makes him feel trapped, like he can’t come to me with whatever is on his mind because he is afraid I will judge him. He has enough to fight out in the world, he doesn’t need to have that same thing at home. I should be his safe place, where he wants to come to not run from as well.
To love my husband, unconditionally, is to love the Lord. Our husbands are God’s sons too so when we love our husbands we are loving the Lord!!
Romans 8:5 (NKJV)
5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
The more we love the Lord the closer we get to Him, we will be closer to our husbands and love our husbands more by doing this.
Deuteronomy 11:18 (NKJV)
18 “Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
That is what God wants, for us to love Him and through that we will be more lovable to our husbands!! In return, I am sure he will be loving us more too!!
What could be better than that!?!
1 Peter 3:1-6 (NKJV)
Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
