WHAT DO WIVES REALLY WANT?
Is it the kitchen renovation, complete with the stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops?
Or that roomy new van to tote the kids around in?
Maybe that dream cruise?
Or perhaps a bigger diamond?
I don't think so. Not based on the hundreds of women I've talked to over the years.
This song lets us in on the core desire of every wife's heart ... because that's how God designed it to be.
My prayer today is that husbands hear and respond to
their wives' deepest, often unspoken, need ~
"Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church - a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ's love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything He does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They're really doing themselves a favor - since they're already 'one' in marriage"
- Ephesians 5:25-28 (The Message).
