#1 – Before she was your wife she was God’s daughter…and He is VERY concerned about how someone treats His girl!
#2 – Women are responders, so if there is friction/conflict in the relationship she is most likely responding to something that is off center…and it is going to take an actual conversation where you use words to figure out what it is.
#3 – If a man will not lead his family then satan will! (See Genesis 3!)
#4 – One of the biggest questions that a woman is always asking of her husband is, “can I trust you with my heart?” And the answer to this question is not simply declared but rather demonstrated over time.
#5 – Every word you speak has meaning to your wife…and HOW you say those words carry even more meaning.
#6 – No woman responds well to condemnation…and if we are supposed to love our wives like Christ loves the church, and there is NO condemnation for those who are in Christ (Romans 8:1) then we MUST watch our words carefully.
#7 – It is a spiritual impossibility for an angry husband to love his wife like Jesus loves the church.
#8 – Your wife LOVES to know you are thinking about her during the day.
#9 – Surfing the internet or playing games on your smart phone while she is sitting next to you on the couch is NOT romantic.
#10 – Pursuit must be intentional! You did not accidentally fall in love…and you will not accidentally stay in love!
