Five Commandments for Ladies
1. Give Up Your Dream for a perfect marriage.
Abraham almost betrayed his wife
12 When the Egyptians see you, they will say, 'This is his wife.' Then they will kill me but will let you live. 13 Say you are my sister, so that I will be treated well for your sake and my life will be spared because of you."
~Gen 12:12-13 (NIV)
2. Give up Trying To change the Other Person
Criticism or Attack will never work
“the Lord God formed the mane from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. … Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, …” ~Gen 2:7,22 (NIV)
3. Give praise and affection
Show to your man that you value him and respect him.
“Don't use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” ~Eph 4:29 (NLT)
4. Do Things he likes to do
Be your man’s best friend
“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. … Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? ~Eccl 4:9,11 (NLT)
5. Provide a peaceful place
Your home is stress-reducing or stress producing?
“Better a dry crust eaten in peace than a house filled with feasting—and conflict.” ~Prov 17:1 (NLT)
“Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife.” ~Prov 21:19 (NIV)
