Am I Living The Way God Says I Should?

This is a list that I have in my Home Making Binder. I have it in a section titled Rules. I refer back to it often and use it as a guide for my actions. Reading it reminds me to take the focus off of myself and to keep it on God. It reminds me of His standard for Christian wives and mothers.

Sometimes as wives we can get caught up in what our husbands may or may not not doing for us, that we loose sight of what God has called us to do. Our obedience to God’s commands are not be contingent upon whether or not our husbands are what we want them to be. We are called to obey God not because everything is perfect, but because we love Him and He is perfect.

Am I reverencing my husband? – Ephesians 5:33
Am I being a keeper of my home? – Titus 2:5
Am I training my children according to God’s word? – Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 6:7
Am I dressing modestly? – 1 Timothy 2:9
Am I making a conscience effort not to nag my husband? – Proverbs 21:19
Am I choosing not to withhold sex from my husband? – 1 Corinthians 7:3-5

Do yo find it hard to obey God’s command to reverence your husband when he has wronged or offended you?

    My mate and I have pretty open communication too, so we are rarely upset with each other enough that it turns me from honoring him. I appreciate that you posted this list, I am going to save it for my daughters.

    By the way, I tagged you to participate in a meme if you would like to.

    My husband and I are strong believers in communication. We diligently try to keep on top of the ‘little foxes’ that creep up in a relationship.

    That said, our biggest challenge is to always speak without sarcasm. I have found that this is most difficult in the heat of an arguement. Thankfully, we call each other on it quickly whenever we slip. It has really been a benefit in erasing sarcasm as a whole from our speech. 🙂
