IT S YOU I LOVE!
By Michael Guido / Metter, Georgia
While on a trip to the store, a driver became careless and sideswiped a car while changing lanes.
Fumbling through maps and warranties, she finally found the small plastic envelop with the papers that she needed. As she began to open them for the police officer, her eyes focused on a note that her husband had written: Dear Mary, when you need these papers, remember it is you I love, not the car!
What a loving note from a caring husband! What an expression of what Paul said in Colossians: You husbands must love your wives and never treat them harshly.
We husbands show our wives that we respect them and love them through kind and caring deeds. It is how we demonstrate our respect for them. What we do and how we treat our wives reflects and reveals the true nature of our love and heart of our character. At all times and in all situations we are to act consistently in ways that are deserving of our wives respect. Wherever we are and no matter what happens, our words and our actions must always put our wives in the best light – no matter what!
Prayer: Father, may we love our wives with kindness, tenderness, compassion, and thoughtfulness at all times. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: Colossians 3:18-19 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.
