Something I never want to have a part in...
It breaks my heart.
It doesn’t make me say “yeah, me too.”
It doesn’t make my sympathize.
“I love my husband but he annoys me.”
Or “no one wants to hear about that stuff... it’s all you ever talk about.”
Or when I see an Instagram reel about how we wives have to pick up after our husbands all the time.
Those things break my heart.
Now let me say, I am not exempt from struggling with these thoughts... certainly not.
But to say “I love my husband” and then let these types of things come out of my mouth for others to hear, is not loving of me.
Is Adam perfect? Most definitely not. But am I perfect? No! And I would be embarrassed and probably ashamed if Adam were to talk about the things I don’t do well to others... or make a reel about everything he does that he feels he shouldn’t have to do.
I’m not saying that having fun with stereo types is wrong, but we as wives should not be having “a little fun” at the expense of our husbands.
I’ve heard it said that “criticism never made anyone want to change.” (And I’m speaking to the choir here! I struggle with this!)
But when I see other wives speaking ill of their husbands, in whatever form it may be, it makes me want to love Adam all the more and pay attention to be sure I don’t do the same.
Let’s speak well of our husbands, ladies! Let’s speak life into them.
“The heart of her husband safely trusts in her...”
