April 25, 2022 – Have You Read the “Marriage Manual”?
Sermon: 1322 – Total Togetherness
Pray Over This
“Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.”
The Bible says here, “Husbands, dwell with your wives according to understanding” or knowledge. We could translate it this way: Live together in the same house with good sense.
What does it mean to live with a car according to knowledge? You get a new automobile. What do you do? You read the manual. You see what kind of oil it takes, what kind of fuel it takes, what the air pressure in the tires needs to be. You watch the gauges, and the gauges indicate the needs of that car. If you want that car to work well, you have to understand the car. With our spouses, God’s Word is the manual. And wives (or husbands) are constantly sending signals. But many of us don’t read the manual, and we pay no attention to the signals. Many of us pay more attention to our automobiles or other possessions than we do to our spouses. This is not living together according to knowledge and understanding.
Take time this week to encourage your spouse or to encourage another married couple you know.
