Genesis 2:24

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” 

I recently heard Pastor Ed Young suggest that a large percentage of the conflict within marriages is the fault of the husband. At first I was stunned by his comment, but as I reflected back on my long career as a Christian Counselor, I’m afraid I must agree.

Far too many husbands have the attitude that they are the big cheese in the family and everyone should devote themselves to making him content. That includes his wife. How far from the Scripture that concept really is.

In Ephesians 5:25 we read the God-given instructions for husbands: “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.” So, husband, how are you doing in obeying this command? More enlightening, how would your wife say you are doing?

In a day and age when husbands disappear into their “man-caves” (I despise that concept), it is time for Godly husbands to show their wives that they are cherished. Say the words and demonstrate the sacrificial actions — die to your own selfish demands and bring new life into your marriage!

Blessings dear hearts. May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
