HINT: He might not extravagantly wine and dine. He doesn't necessarily appear at the door laden with expensive boxes of chocolates. And he may not haul home extravagant bouquets of flowers for every conceivable occasion.
Those things are all well and good.
But the man that a woman really yearns for is the one who says "I love you" by doing the dishes.
Who can get a decent supper on the table. Patiently holds a crying child at night. Takes feverish little ones to the doctor. Cheerfully loads up the gang for a trek to a warehouse store. Encourages his wife to take a much-needed nap. Changes endless dirty diapers. Enthusiastically embraces daddy/daughter dates. And faithfully reads Bible stories at night.
Serving lavishly is in the DNA of men who belong to Christ. Because He's the One who modeled for us what humble servanthood is all about.
Take a look at Philippians 2:1-8.
I honor my sons-in-law today. They are those men. My daughters are blessed. These guys remind me alot of my husband. They may not be perfect, but they are men of character. And I am beyond thankful.
They playfully jostle for the title of "Most Favored Son-in-Law Status." But there are no favorites around here. I love and respect them both. I doubt that there's a "National Sons-in-Law Month." But if there was, I'd be the first one to jump on board.
Love you guys ~
