Check out this video:(taken a while ago but still SO cute)
I sometimes "balk" at instruction, especially when it is in the form of criticism coming from my husband. Yet isn't constructive criticism a God-ordained way to grow in wisdom? And didn't God give me this dear man to protect me, love me, TEACH me as Christ loves, protects and teaches the church? Do I trust that "God knows best" when He put man as the head of the "house"?
Why is it most women find it easier to take instruction from a pastor behind the pulpit, a teacher in a classroom, girlfriends around a cup of tea, or even scripture itself, than listening to and learning from their God-given mates?? So my recent prayer has been to have ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart open to listen and understand what God is trying to teach me through the man I married!
Teach me, God, I am beginning to listen!
