I realized something kind of huge last week.
There are areas I don’t serve my husband where I should.
It’s true. I recognized this in myself after I sighed at his request for me to go to his office and check the mail. Check.The.Mail. Sounds miniscule, I know. It just seems that with two kids in school, one on the way, and compounding lists to complete, driving twenty minutes one way is not something I want to do. So, I sigh. And, I run these office errands with great disdain.
God convicted me of my attitude in running these little office errands. He made me painfully aware that I’m not serving my husband in this way.
There are things I’m not going to want to do in my marriage. But, if I look at those things as a gift I can give my husband, it changes my attitude. As a matter of fact, I become excited, because I GET to give Kris this gift.
So, the next time your spouse needs something from you, and you are resistant in obliging, remember this: it’s a gift you can give him. Or her.
And, that my friends, keeps the home fire a burnin’.
Is there a gift you can give your spouse?
