Being a spiritual leader in a dating relationship Freexxx web cams
That’s not the kind of reputation I want to have in the community.Part of the root meaning for the word provider means “to look ahead.” A provider is one who anticipates and does the strategic planning for the household. Not just the financial goals, but the spiritual goals and emotional goals.I have never met a woman who says, “I resist my husband’s leadership even though he is very humble and Christlike.” The women I’ve met are craving godly leadership in their marriages.First Corinthians gives a clear definition of biblical masculinity: “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.” Before we can be godly husbands, we must be men of courage.No matter how long you’ve been married, now is the time to develop a pattern that can work in your marriage.Remember, it’s a husband who ought to initiate this.In a sense, he is chief executive officer of the corporation. And many times his wife is the chief operating officer.The two of them need to unify their direction for the good of the family.
In fact, 1 Timothy 5:8 says if a man fails to provide for his household, he is worse than a pagan.
After three years of dating Mary Ann, we began to talk about marriage. I cared more about what made her happy than what made God happy.
It was as if God were saying, “You will have no other gods before me, and if you put something or someone else in My place, I will remove it.” In 25 years of marriage, I still run into the same problem.
“A man may not be a vocational theologian,” says Doug Wilson, author of “Reforming Marriage.” “But in his home, he needs to be the resident theologian.” The reason there is such a debate about whether men ought to be leaders in a marriage relationship is because too many men have not led with humility.
Men may be called by God to lead their wives, but our leadership should be selfless.
