In the New Testament, we see it in the attitude of the older brother to the prodigal son, who doesn't rejoice over his lost brother's return but, instead throws ...

Marriage is hard work. It doesn't always feel like work, but let's be honest, every couple experiences tough times. So, here are a few things to consider: first, being different is OK. After all, you are two "individuals." If you were both the same, one of you wouldn't be necessary. Use your difference to your advantage by being one another's completers. Second, wives are to love and give honor to their husbands and husbands are to sacrificially love and lead their wives. Stop telling your spouse about their role and do a scriptural study of your ...
"What would you do-oo-oo for a Klondike bar?" Have you seen the ads? The guy challenged to listen to his wife instead of looking at the big game on the TV...and then a wife had to actually choose to go see an action movie. The ice cream had better be good, right?
