Thoughts on Thursday: Cherishing Our Wives, Not Our Lives

Hey gang,

I recently came across a couple of great posts dealing with the fine and elusive task of “husbanding.” I know I need all the help I can get in being a more self-less husband. Check out this post over at The Gender Blog (which is itself over at The Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood) and actually read it; its some great stuff!

Here’s a sample:

It seems to me that often the times I grumble in my heart about my wife are the same times I am not seeking to cherish her.”

That’s way too convicting for me. I know that what it comes down to for me is that I too often am only concerned with “Numero Uno” – fretting over my needs, wishes and desires – instead of giving myself selflessly to the most amazing woman in my life. I hope that I can cherish myself less and cherish her a whole lot more than I have.

How’s about you all? Any other ideas you’d care to add to his list?
