I wanted to share this piece I stumbled on that you might be interested in. Personally, it has always been helpful to me to understand a person that I am having difficulty loving the way Christ wants me to love him (or her). Think of it this way… loving your husband is loving Christ..but we aren’t going there today!
The 7 Facts You Need to Know: (add your own in the comments!)
#1 – Never, EVER, underestimate the power of your words to your husband. You should be his PRIMARY source of encouragement.
#2 – A woman who attempts to manipulate/control her husband through emotional outbursts, crying and temper tantrums is NOT focused on what is best for the marriage but rather obsessed with getting her way…which always leads to division in the marriage relationship. (See Proverbs 12:4, Proverbs 19:13, Proverbs 21:9, Proverbs 21:19, Proverbs 25:24, Proverbs 27:15!)
#3 – Worship God, not your husband. If you worship your husband first, you will crush him under the weight of that responsibility! Your #1 focus should be on the LORD-NOT your husband.
#4 – Be trustworthy! In all things, but especially with his feelings and what he shares with you, regardless how little that may be.
#5 – Your husband cannot read your mind. Tell him what is wrong, don’t make him guess.
#6 – How you speak about him in front of your children either sets him up for success or failure as a father.
#7 – Be a woman of character-he wants you to look good, but he needs you to spend as much time on the inside development as you do the outside! (see Proverbs 31:10-12!)
