Man: And why is this toy here in the living room?
Woman: (looks and continues what she’s doing)
Man: I’m I not talking to someone?
Woman: But sweetheart, there is nothing wrong with that toy there now.
Man: This is a living room for crying out loud. What if we have guests?
Woman: Babe, this thing is insignificant. Its too small for anyone to even notice it.
Man: (affirmatively) I don’t want to see it here.
Woman: So where do you want me to put it?
Man: I don’t know. (Absent mindedly)Maybe in the kitchen or anywhere.
Woman: (surprised) kitchen? Are you kidding me?
Man: (getting irritated) Just take this thing away. After all, your baby hasn’t arrived yet. If you start littering the house with baby toys now, what will you do when you finally give birth? Please don’t get me upset.
Woman: my baby hasn’t arrived yet? Like…MY baby? MY baby? not OUR baby?
Man: oh, come of it. You know that’s not what I mean (tries to touch her)…
Woman: (jerks his hands off)…don’t touch me (walks out of him into the room)
This is how a little, seemingly insignificant thing degenerated into a big mess.
Song of Solomon 2:15 The Message (MSG)
Then you must protect me from the foxes, foxes on the prowl,Foxes who would like nothing better than to get into our flowering garden.
It is your duty to protect your marriage.Protect your wife, protect your husband.
May I point out that the foxes will not come as foxes.
They will come as disagreements, arguments, little fights and the likes.
A wise spouse will spot them from afar off, before it comes close enough to cause damage.
May God bless our homes.
CONFESSION FOR TODAY
I am a wise spouse.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Lord, help me to stay sensitive.
THOUGH FOR TODAY
1 Peter 3:7 (KJV) Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
Make up your mind to guide against anything that so easily besets you towards your spouse.
