How Do You Spell Love to a Wife?
Husbands, in the Love and Respect book, I explain Biblically what God’s Word reveals about loving a wife. These are the salient concepts from my findings. Do these make sense to you? What doesn’t make sense to you? I would love to hear from you.
C - Closeness: I am close—and not just when I want sex.
O - Openness: I open up to her, to talk and share, not acting angry or disinterested.
U - Understanding: I don’t try to “fix” her but just listen—trying to be considerate when she’s really upset.
P - Peacemaking: I practice and know the power in saying, “Honey, I’m really sorry.”
L - Loyalty: I often assure her of my love and commitment.
E - Esteem: I honor and cherish her as first in importance.
Oh, how are you doing in these six areas? On a scale of 1 to 10, would you rate yourself a 7 or above? Why?
