Advancing By Caring For Your Lover. The man is always the muscular, stronger gender while his feminine counterpart can be frail, weaker, and vulnerable, physically and emotionally. However, the administrative and justice system of God for any marriage is amazing.

Husbands are to care for their wives. And if you don’t, God is unequivocal about it. Your prayers will be hindered.

Who wants his prayers hindered? Who wants his ways hard? Who wants his life without God’s support? That is not a place to be! 

But it is so clear what God wants in the scriptures. Even as singles, you cannot be sowing wild oats all over the place, thinking there would be no consequences. In the ideal dating situation, the guy is the protector of the lady’s body and soul, not the violator of it.

Advancing By Caring For Your Lover 

Let’s see how the scripture puts it.

1 Peter 3:7 (KJV)
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

Let’s consider other translations to see what God is saying here! 

1 Peter 3:7 (MSG)
The same goes for you husbands: Be good husbands to your wives. Honor them, delight in them. As women they lack some of your advantages. But in the new life of God’s grace, you’re equals. Treat your wives, then, as equals so your prayers don’t run aground.

Who wants his prayers to run aground?

1 Peter 3:7 (GNB)
In the same way you husbands must live with your wives with the proper understanding that they are more delicate than you. Treat them with respect, because they also will receive, together with you, God’s gift of life. Do this so that nothing will interfere with your prayers.

You must relate with your fiancée or wife with the proper understanding that they are more delicate and they are to be treated with respect.

Pause for a moment and see if you are doing this. If not, this is the time for repentance! And O ye wives, don’t sit back and give attitudes making it harder for him to love! If his prayers are hindered, so are yours! May your prayers not be hindered in Jesus’ name!

If you are still single, the way you are relating with your colleagues, roommates, and friends is an indication of what will play out when a relationship ensues. It is therefore time to start working on yourself!

Good morning!
