Are You A Mad Wife?

Ryan O'Neill had an affair while he was with Farrah Fawcett.   He was asked why he had an affair if he loved her so much.  He said that Farrah was always mad at him and he found someone that wasn't mad at him. Very sad...both the affair and that she was always mad at him.

So many wives are mad at their husbands.  I was mad at Ken for 23 years.  My mom was usually mad at my dad.  We just had dinner with a couple and she said for most of their 30 years of marriage, she was mad at her husband.

God doesn't want us to live lives mad at our husbands.  I sure wouldn't want some one mad at me all the time.  The commandments He gives to wives concerning their husbands are as follows ~

Love your husband.  {Ephesians 5:25}

Please your husband.  {I Corinthians 7:34}

Reverence your husband.  {Ephesians 5:33}

Serve your husband.  {Galatians 5:13}

Submit to your husband.  {Ephesians 5:22}

Obey your husband.  {Titus 2:5}

I don't see being mad, having disdain for, or trying to change him in those commands.  Those commands aren't given with a stipulation that he be a good husband.  Love him if he is a nice guy.  Reverence him if he is worthy of being reverenced.

No, there are no stipulations except one...because God commands you to do these things. He is a good God and His ways are always good.  Trust Him.  Forgive your husband and be mad at him no longer.  A woman who is mad at her husband cannot be joyful and God commands us to be joyful.  Life is a lot better when you are rejoicing.

For the anger of man does not
       produce the righteousness of God.        
James 1:20
