Sacrificially loving my wife is not easy.

I have such a selfish nature. My chief aim is usually to do what I want to do when I want to do it. My daily agenda is typically filled with activities and things to do that will fulfill my needs and desires.

Sure, I’ll help around the house, engage in quality conversation and do thoughtful things for my wife, but only when it’s convenient for me.  And rarely is it convenient.

This is not OK. Things need to change. I need to change.

The directive from God and the timeless truth from His Word is very clear:

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her… – Ephesians 5:25

And what did Christ do for the church? He died for her.

The very least I can do is take out the trash without being told.
