The above verse is perhaps one of the most powerful husband/wife verses in the Bible. We woman thrive on love. We want the cuddles, hugs and sweet talk.
But those men of ours...we have got to remember they are to reign our home. They deserve the utmost of respect. And you know what? When we give them that respect...we get those hugs and cuddles more often!
Of course, Snoodles already discussed the husband/wife relationship last week when she discussed verse 9. Take a moment to review verse 9, and then hop down and read verse 19. Ahhh, women, it is so hard for our husbands to listen to us nag, nag, nag. But verse 19 goes a step further. Did you see that? It is not only hard to live with a quarrelsome woman, but also a fretful woman!! When we become worry warts, then we are not showing our husbands the respect that they deserve. Our husbands want to protect us. They want to be king of our home. When we start worrying, then we are sending the message to our husbands that we don't trust them to provide what we need. I don't think it is wrong to discuss our worries with our husbands. Rather, I think this passage is saying it is wrong for us to 'give it to God and our husbands' then take it back and get all fretful over it again.
Pardon me a minute, gotta apply a band-aid....
