Understanding One Another
1 Pet. 3:1-8
Often one hears comments like “why can’t women be like men?” Women cannot be like men, neither can men be like women because God created the two sexes differently. The marriage is enriched when husbands understand that their wives differ in the things that interest them, in the things they consider important and in the way they approach issues. For example, women are more interested in dresses, talking about both great and minor issues, details of issues and events; etc. The husband should always remember he is married to a woman and not to a man. The other side is also true, the wives need to understand that men approach things differently. Husbands are enjoined to treat their wives with understanding – with the awareness of the differences between men and women. When both husband and wife accept the differences, there will be fewer complaints, grumblings and fights.
Point of Emphasis: Seek to understand your spouse better and consider his or her side in the relationship.
Prayer Point: Father, give us the grace to seek to understand our spouses better than we do now.
