Verses 22-25, 28-29, 33: “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.”
“So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.”
“Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”

My wife and I were discussing these verses. There is a wealth of devotions that we could write on this subject alone. If you look around society today, you’ll see the institutions of marriage, wives, and husbands under attack. As a husband, I have a book on my shelf (which I admit I need to reread) called “Four Pillars of a Man’s Heart” by Stu Weber.

If husbands did what they were supposed to do…
And wives did what they were supposed to do…
Then divorce lawyers would have nothing to do!

Something to think about today.
