The Sacrificial Quotient of Giving 

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it.” Ephesians 5:25

A little boy was looking through the family picture album one day and came to a picture of his mother when she was a young lady. It was taken just after his parents had gotten married. The boy asked his father, “Is that when Mother came to work for us?”

Does this ring true in your home? Let me set the record straight.

The husband, if he loves his wife as Christ loves the church, is going to love his wife sacrificially. He is going to love her in such a way that he would be willing to lay down his life for her. He’s going to protect her. He’s going to provide for her. He’s going to do what he can to present his wife and family as holy vessels for the Lord’s use.

Are you married? Then how are you doing on the sacrificial quotient of giving to your spouse? If you had to, would you be willing to lay down your life for your spouse?
