Another Pearl of Wisdom…

1 Peter 3:7

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.

Husbands, this is not a suggestion. The Lord commands husbands to learn their wives. When I first heard the explanation of this verse, I thought it was phenomenal. As wives, we get so frustrated at being misunderstoood, or simply feeling like our husbands do not try to understand us at all. The Lord goes on to say that understanding and learning your wife helps to get your prayers answered. My, how good would marriages be if every husband thought to himself that the Lord would not answer his prayer if he had not spent any time trying to get to know his wife!

 

This is not to bash husbands, please understand. But the divorce rate is so high, and there are so many women living in unhappy marriages until something has to be said and something needs to be done. The main thing that needs to happen is that we surrender our will to the Lord Jesus Christ and do everything we can to please Him.
