Men's Wandering Eyes

She is very upset that her husband likes looking at other women's boobs and butts.  The majority of men enjoy looking at boobs and butts.  No, they aren't suppose to lust.  Teach your young sons to bounce their eyes and control what they look at but most husbands weren't taught that.
Boobs and butts are everywhere today.  Women love showing them off because they like the attention they get from men.  We are called to a higher standard.  We are called to be modest and protect our brothers in Christ.
However, I told her she needs to focus on her own sins and forget her husband's sins.  Let the Lord deal with them.  He has to stand before God and give an account of his life.  We aren't accountable for our husband's sins.
Many of you will say that the wife needs to confront her husband in his sin.  In my experience, I haven't seen this to be a problem.  Wives love confronting their husbands in their sins, over and over again.  Yes, confront him once but then let the Lord work on him.
If he wants you to hold him accountable, hold him accountable but you must not let it bother you.  Let it go and enjoy life.  He isn't perfect.  He never will be and neither will you.  Would you like him always confronting you about your sins?   Overeating?  Gossiping?  Being unsubmissive and arguing?
We all have sins that we struggle with.  Instead of nagging him about it, pray for him.  Pray for him often.  Our husbands need our prayers.  This is the best gift you can give him.  They are in a battle just as we are.  Satan would love to destroy our husbands and our marriages so pray.
And never be afraid for...
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
1 John 4:4
