A Simple but Difficult Piece of Advice

One of the things I have been most passionate about over the years is Marriage. This has developed for a number of reasons, which would be better suited in another post. In my thirteen years of marriage I have come to realize that there is one phrase in scripture that is probably the most important piece of advice for husbands and yet the most difficult to live out.

Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. – 1 Peter 3:7

Live with your wives in an understanding way!

Husbands we are to be students of our wives. We need to be figuring out what makes them tick. What are their hopes and dreams. What are they struggling through and how can we help them.

As husbands we need to “get them” even if we aren’t sure how. Man up and figure it out! Im tired of whining men who say that it just isn’t their personality.

I believe without a shadow of a doubt that if more men took this directive seriously more marriages would last and not end in divorce.

MEN HOW ARE YOU DOING AT THIS? DO YOU KNOW AND UNDERSTAND YOUR WIFE MORE THIS WEEK THAN LAST?

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO UNDERSTAND HER MORE?
