“How I live as a wife is less about my relationship with my husband and more about my relationship with my Savior.” Jen Weaver, A Wife’s Secret to Happiness: Receiving, Honoring, & Celebrating God’s Role for You in Your Marriage
Honoring God as my Father-in-Law means how I treat His son is based on how I love our Father.
And how I treat my husband cannot be based on how he treats me. Jesus tells us “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. If you do what is good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that.” (Luke 6:32-33 HCSB)
It’s easy to be kind when my husband is kind. But it is grace to love when he acts unloving.
