Love of Husband

Over the years I have learned a lot about marriage but I am always learning.  I knew how important it was to respect your husband and have always tried to do that.  Have to admit I am much more successful these days than I use to be but I am also much more aware when I am not showing respect.  Kind of stands out like a neon light.  Respect may be important for the man than love.  I think they like being loved too.  Ephesians 5:33 teaches us that husbands are to love their wives and wives are to respect their husbands.  In Titus 2:4 the older women are told to teach the younger women to love their husbands and children.  In this verse the word love means love of a husband, male companion of the wife.  So, it means,"the special affection of a woman for her lifetime mate, her husband, embracing him as her "calling"(stewardship) from God.  Gives me more to think about! God teach me more.

Thinking About Egypt

Recently I have found myself somewhat concerned about Israel's welfare with all the unrest in the Middle East.  I thought, "Oh no, Israel has lost the supporting relationship from Egypt!" Then God spoke again as I have been listening to Isaiah being read. Don't go to Egypt, don't trust in their horses or chariots, is what it was saying over and over again! Trust in God! A good reminder who we are to put our trust in for Israel and for ME.
