Husbands if you don’t love yourself, how are you going to love your wife?

In Ephesians 5:28, Paul wrote “In the same way husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself.”

What a very profound passage of scripture. Paul is stating that we should love our wives just like we love our own bodies. In most cases does this happen? No!

I know many arguments between PG and I ensued because she would make suggestions that she felt would be to my benefit and she felt that I would deliberately do the opposite.

Consciously, or subconsciously I am sure I probably did the opposite because following her lead meant that I couldn’t think for myself; that my idea wouldn’t work. So instead of taking care of my body, or in essence showing love for my spouse, I did the opposite. I wasn’t showing love for my myself, which was an eye opener. Men is this happening to you? Are you insecure of your wife’s personality or the fact that she makes more money than you? If  this is true, then your interaction with her will reflect that and it will affect your marriage.

Digesting this passage helped me to realize that if I love myself, which I do, then I must love my wife the same love. And husbands out there..You should too!

Here are 3 ways to show love for your wife!

  • Acknowledge your wife’s ideas, even if you take them.
  • Find out what are the little things that irk her.
  • Push her to greatness!

Husbands, what are some other ways that you can show love for your wife, and in essence show love for yourself.
