Husbands Need To Confront

There aren't many men who read my blog but for those of you who do, I think you need to start speaking up and being the leader in the home.  Ken so wishes he would have spoken up years ago and told me I was treating him with disrespect.

If you have a wife who is constantly grumpy, negative, disrespects you, nags and tries manipulating her, start telling her what she is doing is wrong.  Tell her she respects other people more than she respects you and she is commanded by God to respect you.  Start confronting her with her sin. 

I am sure she has told you what your sins are many times.  The Bible admonishes us to rebuke and admonish others and if you can't do this with your own wife, who can you do it with?  

I think a lot of husbands are afraid of their wives.  Wives wield a lot of power in relationships with their moods and ability to withhold sex.  This is why it is much harder for a marriage to improve when just dealing with the husbands. 

Almost all marriages have dramatically changed as I have mentored the women.  But I think the husbands can help by speaking truth to their wives. 

If you have been reading this blog, you now know what a godly wife should look like.  Start speaking truth to her and start praying she will listen.  Hopefully, she will take what you have to say to heart and see her sin in the marriage.  The biggest key to changing behavior is to see it, confess it, and work on changing it. 

So be leaders, men, and start taking the lead in your families.  It may not work but as you are the head of the home, it is your responsibility to act like the head and lead your wife down the right path.

But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things,
who is the head, even Christ.
Ephesians 4:15

For the husband is the head of the wife,
 even as Christ is the head of the church:
and he is the savior of the body.
Ephesians 5:23
