HOW ARE YOU AS A WIFE?
This question kept playing over and over my head like a broken record. Ahh, the result of what I heard over DZAS’ Shepherd’s Talk program last night. It made me look at myself as a wife.
The question made me reflect, assess, process my role as a wife. How do I treat my husband? How do I respond in conflict situations? How do I handle our differences? Am I bitter, resentful, discontented, a fault finder?
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your eye? How can you say to your brother, let me take the speck out of your eye when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite,first take the plank out of your own eye and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Ouch! Bullseye 🎯
See to it that no one misses the grace of.God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
Hmmm does my bitterness affect my husband only?
Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
I am different from my husband therefore I must not expect him to think like me, do things like I do, speak like me.
So how am I as a wife? My husband is the best judge of that. He said I have changed a lot for the better.
I am still a work in progress. I will get there with the help of the Holy Spirit, I will overcome my weaknesses.
Love You, Jesus 🙏❤️
