For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord. Genesis 18:19 (NIV)
Many Christian women long for their husband to be the spiritual leader in the home.
Too many men are busy with work, sports, and daily life to learn what it takes to be a spiritual leader to his wife and children.
The statistics of successful families versus families in crisis is astounding when the man is the spiritual leader.
What example do you set in your home? Do you seek the Lord daily? Do you pray with and for your wife? Do your children see and hear your walk with the Lord?
If you feel that you are the spiritual leader in your home, humbly ask your wife what you could do better to guide, teach, and direct your family in the ways of the Lord.
If you have not taken on the role of the spiritual leader in your home, tell your wife that you desire to be a spiritual leader and find another man in your church who can help you in this endeavor.
Do not put this off. You – and your family – cannot afford to let the world take on this role. You must be a witness for Christ in your home.
Yours for the celebration of marriage,
