Thinking We Are Better Than Our Husbands

Most wives believe they know more than their husbands and that they are much better than them. We don't have that powerful sex drive like they do, therefore, we don't struggle with lust like they do. We don't sit on the couch all evening watching TV or playing video games. We are much more spiritual than they are since we have regular devotions, go to more bible studies, and are much more involved in church activities.

Men, after all, are just boys in men's bodies. They really never grow up. We are so much smarter and more intelligent than them. Bring it on feminism! Down with masculinity. I am sure there would be world peace and no more wars if women ruled the world.

Admit it. We all have some feminist qualities in us. Most of us truly think women are better than men. This, my dear friends, is why we have a very difficult time truly respecting our husbands. Bottom line, we think we are better human beings than them.

The great problem with this thinking...PRIDE! Why is it so easy to think this way? We are not taking our thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ. He commands we reverence our husbands. Love always thinks and believes the best of others but we are terrible about doing this with the one person we are to love the most.

Let me list the good things about men now. We wouldn't have homes, buildings, cars, ovens, freeways, planes, telephones, printing presses, wood floors, etc. without men...oh, maybe they aren't so bad. We wouldn't have men to hunt and farm food for us and use their physical power for good things, like protecting us from harm. These are a lot of things to be thankful for men.

Your husband deserves your respect because the God who created you tells you to respect him. God never wants you, even for a moment, to think you are better than your husband. He never wants you to think more highly of yourself than you ought or to think negatively about or criticize your husband.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, 
but only such as is good for building up, 
as fits the occasion, 
that it may give grace to those who hear.
Ephesians 4:29
