Today is Valentine’s day, otherwise known as Lovers day.
The singles seem to celebrate this day more than couples because they are still very much in love. The butterflies are still flying in their bellies. Most couples have allowed the butterflies to die over the years.
This shouldn’t be. Every couple should still have love in their eyes, and they should still make each other’s hearts tingle. We have to learn to keep love alive.
Through the twists, bends, and turns of the married life, God wants to step in and help us live a fulfilling married life. God’s help comes to us by Him giving us instructions to follow.
Like the instructions given to wives we discussed yesterday, the married men have their own instructions to follow.
I believe if both wives and husbands can be devoted to obeying these instructions, we will see the love of God manifest in our marriages.
In the same way you married men should live considerately with [your wives], with an intelligent recognition [of the marriage relation], honoring the woman as [physically] the weaker, but [realizing that you] are joint heirs of the grace (God’s unmerited favor) of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered and cut off. [Otherwise you cannot pray effectively.] -1Pe 3:7 (AMP)
The key things to note here are:
1. Married men should live considerately with their own wives.
2. Intelligent recognition of the marriage relation
3. Honoring the woman (wife)
4. Physically the weaker.
5. Realizing that you are joint heirs of the grace of life.
6. That your prayers be not hindered and cut off.
7. Otherwise you cannot pray effectively.
Let all men study these instructions meditatively.
