Marriage Makeover Moment:
I am continuing my exploration of the C.O.U.P.L.E. acronym developed by Emmerson Eggerichs to help husbands remember what God calls them to do. You can read the total acronym on my first blog on this topic 6 Ways Husbands Can Love Their Wives. In each post I’ll list the detailed info related to each letter of the acronym along with the scripture that backs it up. Don’t worry guys I will follow up with 6 Ways Wives Can Respect Their Husbands.
Today’s letter is:
O – Openness
A loving husband is open with his wife. When husbands close themselves off and refuse to open up, she feels unloved.
How To Do This: Share your feelings; Talk about your day; Use words instead of grunts and long sighs!
Questions to Ask Yourself: Do I share my thoughts and problems with her, or do I keep things to myself to prove I’m strong and capable? Do I come across as irritated or angry when she tries to draw me out? Do I turn my spirit and attention more toward the TV or other electronics than toward the heart of my wife?
