Thoughtfulness

January 5th, 2011 Comments

Hmmmm, let´s both think about that....Although the concepts in the first few pages of this book are relatively simple – they really are deep character issues that go to the heart of my soul.  Paul, in the book of Romans, tells us that the Law of God is really just designed to be a mirror into our soul.  This book, The Love Dare, is acting in the same way.  I am beginning to see how poor of a husband I really am.

When I compare myself to other men, I think I’m doing a pretty fantastic job.  But as this book points out certain character issues that would enable me to be a better husband, I feel very humbled and inadequate.

The other thing is that I will find myself thinking that my Wonderful Wife needs to read this book – and put it into practice.  Then I slap myself as I’m internally reminded that people in glass houses shouldn’t through stones.  I’m also reminded that it is my task to be a leader.  And I need to lead in these areas.

I have much to learn – and yet, I have to admit, sometimes this process makes me want to stand by the status quo.  It is love, commitment, and an urge to succeed that presses me forward.

    I agree that when I compare you to some of my friend’s husband’s (which is always dangerous, btw), you definitely are doing a fantastic job. Thank you. And I would be happy to read The Love Dare with or after you. I am reading and praying through “The Power of a Praying Wife” again, if that counts?? Also, I LOVE this song. VERY true-I relate.
