Are you having troubles in your marriage? Consider this passage about how a husband should love his wife: “Love is kind” (1 Corinthians 13:4). I believe husbands hold the key to a flourishing marriage. If they would be proactive instead of merely reactive, leading spiritually, it would change everything, especially in a struggling marriage. Yes, the love that a husband is to have for his wife is kind. This love shows itself practically: showing her tenderness, bringing her gifts, actually telling her you love her.
The Bible says about the husband of the woman of virtue in Proverbs 31, “Her children rise up and call her blessed and her husband also, and he praises her” (Proverbs 31:28). Husbands, when is the last time you complimented your wife in front of the kids, friends, even strangers! You should be her number-one fan!
Did you know that a kiss is a wonderful way to show your love, and you may even live longer! A German group of psychologists, physicians, and insurance companies worked together on a research project to find the secret to long life and success and they made an amazing discovery. The secret they discovered? A kiss! Their extensive research revealed that a husband should “kiss his wife each morning when he leaves for work”! The studies revealed that “The Good-Morning Kissers” miss less work because of sickness and earn twenty to thirty percent more money than non-kissers.
So, give some of these principles a try and see what happens.
