Yesterday I introduced a list of things that every women desires in her man. I speak from a man’s perspective, but only after being married for thirty-three years.
As we look at the next five items on the list, let’s not forget the reason they matter—because we desire an exciting, growing romance with our wives, centered on God. This is under our control, gentlemen.
We make the difference in our families as we commit to our marriages. It’s the natural outcome as we focus our attention on our wives and children. We need to be the leaders God has called us to be or we can’t expect to have the kind of marriage God desires for us—and that would be tragic.
That understood, the last five items are as follows:
6. They want a man who listens.
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
7. They want a man who is self-confident.
8. They want a man who is kind.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
9. They want a man who will be the Spiritual leader of the family.
But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
10. They want a man who is faithful.
Remember men—guard your hearts and do not give Satan an opportunity to gain a foothold into your home, your family, your marriage. It really is up to you.
