A husband’s leadership in the home must be firmly rooted in love.
Why? Love is the core principle that should govern everything you say and do. What did Paul tell the leaders of the Corinthian Church when they needed to take the leadership of their church. Paul told them, “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love” 1 Cor. 16:13-14. If you need to turn things around in your home, then you must be strong, brave, act in faith and walk in love. You can be strong and loving at the same time.
Jesus is your ultimate example of a leader. He was strong and yet tender as the circumstances required. He could drive the money changers out of the Temple and hold a child in His arms or cry over Jerusalem.
Let all that you do as a husband and a leader in your home be done with strength, boldness, and with the tenderness of love.
Be Strong. Love Like Men.
