Tip of the Week for Men

A word from Jeff…………..

1 Thess 2:4-8

“……2 We had previously suffered and been treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you his gospel in the face of strong opposition. 3 For the appeal we make does not spring from error or impure motives, nor are we trying to trick you. 4 On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts. 5 You know we never used flattery, nor did we put on a mask to cover up greed—God is our witness. 6 We were not looking for praise from people, not from you or anyone else, even though as apostles of Christ we could have asserted our authority. 7 Instead, we were like young childrenamong you.    Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, 8 so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.”

Men, as I was reading in 1 Thess Chapter 2, particularly verse 8, I thought of this text in relationship to marriage.

Are you ready to share the Gospel with your wife? And not just the Gospel, but to share yourself with her.

Does your wife know what is going on with your world, and your heart!

Set aside some time this week to intentionally share with her!

    I try to share my feelings and what I’m dealing with and she more or less just shrugs and says sorry, what do you want me to do. we’ve been married 28 years this week and for the last 3 I thought it would be the last. I’m so tired. we just get into this crappy mood when we talk about my feelings, my needs. She doesn’t talk much about her feelings. she has no friends to share with. she’s depressed. we have no money. I love Jesus, we both do, and maybe that’s why I haven’t left. but I’m so tired. I just want to come home and be loved
