Valentines Day Musings 2019

Valentine’s Day musings (not a forward). Two lessons from bible, and my musings, rather!

FIRST LESSON:

“And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Lots of people think wife should submit to husband, and strangely, most of those who do also act out as if they submitted to their wives. Remember Boban & Molly cartoons of the 70s, where the character of Chettan is always afraid of the dictatorial Chedathy!

SECOND LESSON:

“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.”

‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Most people like myself think it is my priorities that the wife should adapt to, or vice versa. WRONG!

Building one another up is a lifelong journey, and either partner should do equally towards the other. This includes support for his/ her passions, careers, achievements, disappointments, including finding the time and energy to do so, and even publicly showing the support.

Both verses jumped out from this book.

Any thoughts?
