Scripture

Ephesians 5: 33

But it also applies to you: every husband must love his wife as himself, and every wife must respect her husband. 

Observation

As based on the readings in Esther 1- 19:22. A male dominant world is supposedly ideal where they are the master and the women are the servant.. This was the case in Ancient China and some men still have this outdated mentality. However for any relationship to work both parties have to be treated with mutual respect. 

Application

There shouldn’t be a master-servant type of relationship in a marriage. Both of us are individuals with our wants and needs and to have one person (normally the female’s) needs neglected and suppressed just to feed the male EGO is really illogical. Having mutual respect and understanding combined with  honesty and communication are essential to make any marriage work.  

Prayer

Dear GOD,

Help me be strong in my marriage and help us not pick on each others weaknesses and faults as we strive to do our best for our family. Let our love for each other and you be strong and help us wade through any storms and challenges that may come our way. 

 

AMEN.
