Husbands Love Your Wives

August 03, 2011

“Husbands love your wives…” – Colossians 3:19

Husbands, what our wives need most from us is love. But there are several aspects of love that most men don’t come by naturally. One is the woman’s need for romance, attention, and affection. I know what some of you guys are thinking: “Hey, I like sex; I’ll meet that need.” If that is your thinking, you’re clueless!

Husbands, remember that with our wives, romance and affection is much more than sex. It’s how we treat her throughout the day. It’s saying words like, “I love you” and “I need you.” It’s a listening ear. It’s remembering special days like anniversaries, birthdays, and Valentine’s Day. It’s weekly dates and overnight getaways–times of falling in love all over again.

God’s Word says, “Husbands, love your wives.” Just remember that love means romance, affection, attention, and not just sex.
