- “She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.” (Genesis 3:6)
Wives, nothing has really changed since our first parents walked in the Garden. Your husband will pretty much accept what you give him. This doesn’t mean he is not responsible for his actions (that’s why the bible blames Adam for bringing sin into the world \\ Romans 5) but nevertheless, we men are all too prone to take our cues from our wives.
I wish it wasn’t this way. I wish we men stepped up more at home; but the truth is we often fall short. You can fuss about it and be resentful or you can accept the reality and do something positive about it.
There’s many a man who is further down the road of being the man he should be because of a good wife who stepped up and followed God first (self included).
There’s many a happy marriage because the wife first took responsibility (mine included). Matter of fact, my wife studied so hard in trying to figure me out that she eventually became a marriage counselor!
Ladies, in most cases, you set the tone in your home. Whatever you’re cooking up is what gets consumed. So, dear daughter of Eve—what have you been serving up for your family lately—fruit from the tree of life or fruit from the tree of death?
