Dear Ladies, I wanted to bring to your attention an interesting situation that I have encountered A LOT! As women, we all want to be treated kindly, spoken to with respect, be cared for, and to have the freedom to “decide” whether we want to engage in intimacy or if we do not; to have the freedom to reject or accept the idea.
However, so often, as wives we give ourselves the freedom to have a sharp tongue, and to allow our husbands to experience rejection physically.
OUCH– I am stepping on sacred ground, I know. However I have heard this time and time again!
I would be amiss not to address this discrepancy. IF your husband “rejected you” or used sharp words towards you –I imagine you would be quite unhappy. How can we respond to our “love” in a way the WE would want to be treated?? What would it look like if we only used voice tones that would be acceptable to us??
I can only imagine that our relationships would improve!
What are your thoughts; I welcome them! 🙂
I am a firm believer of ‘what you give is what you get in return’ as far as human behavior is concerned. If you are a kind wife to your Husband and treat him right, he would cherish you, love you and nurture you in return.
Test it out! I pray your relationships flourish in a fresh way!
Luke 6:31 Says “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” 🙂
