“Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.” (Colossians 3:19)
My pastor told a story about a man who decided to make a vow to be the best husband and father he could be. When he returned home from work, instead of just plopping down on the couch, he complimented his wife. “That’s a beautiful sweater on you,” he remarked. The next week, the family went on a vacation. There were activities scheduled that he really didn’t enjoy but before complaining, he thought, “I’m going to be the best husband and dad.” He simply smiled and didn’t complain all week. After days of star treatment, his wife looked at him with a very sad look on her face.
“What’s the matter?” he asked.
“I went to the doctor last week for some tests. Is there something you know that I don’t know? Am I dying?” she asked with tears in her eyes.
“Why would you think that?” he asked.
“You’ve been so nice to me all week, so I thought I must be dying.”
The husband laughed and wrapped his arms around his wife. “No honey, you’re not dying. I’m just learning how to live.”
