“Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.” - William Shakespeare
“It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a Free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even of his personal services to the defense of it.” George Washington
“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.”
VERSE: Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy. - Ephesians 5:25-26
THOUGHT: For husbands, there is sacrificial love in our purpose and purpose in our sacrifice. We give up ourselves to love our wives. Jesus is our example here, and he gave up everything. His purpose? To make us holy and beautiful to God. Our motives are to be equally as sacrificial and pure in surrendering our rights to bless and love our wives. As Paul reminds us in Ephesians 5:21, we too are to submit, but this does not mean spinelessness, it means service and sacrifice to bless and bring glory to Christ.
PRAYER: Holy God, help our families to be full of love and may this
begin with me, today, in my family. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
