God has laid on my heart for the past year that I’ve been rededicating my life to Him that Men are to lead the household.
This sounds like it’s a narcissistic and controlling, misogynistic ploy for the man to “control” his household but the pastor in this video aptly points out that scripture states men should love their wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for it.
Ultimately being the head of your household means everything is your responsibility.
That sounds rough, but I wanted to shake it up a bit and probably make you mad as you might be yelling that your wife has to do something too. That’s true. God made Eve as a helpmate to Adam, but God is going to look to us first for the responsibility of our household.
More often than not I don’t want to read my bible.
More often than not I don’t want to pray.
More often than not I don’t want to go to church.
However, God placed the responsibility for my wife, and my future children, on my shoulders.
My wife is also an incredibly Godly woman, but I can dissuade her from doing our devotions and praying.
Men, it’s time to start being men!
This doesn’t mean the gruff and tough guy. This means a man willing to take responsibility for himself and his family.
In case anyone didn’t know what he was talking about when he mentioned the way his wife understands love, then you might not have heard of this great book: The Five Love Languages.
It’s $6 from Amazon. You can get it from your local library, or I guarantee someone in
your church has a copy they will loan you.
The book took me about a day to get through. It’s a really easy read and when you discuss this with your spouse it will be much easier to communicate about what your and their love language is.
I know it helped me understand my wife a great deal more.
Be a man! Take responsibility for your household.
Give yourself up for your wife without being Rambo.
Give yourself up for her by being loving, caring and completely vulnerable with her.
Baby! You’re my 9 Cow Woman!
