I woke this morning feeling convicted* that I needed to be a more selfless husband. By most folks standards I am far from a selfish husband, and my bride says the same – but is that enough? Ultimately what should matter to me, the only standard that’s should count, is God’s standard. I’m not sure what I am missing, but now that I am focused on it, I have no doubt He will make it clear to me.
Whose standard are you following? Don’t be side tracked by your friends, your bride, or some guy on the Internet – seek to know and follow God’s standards for you.
* Convicted is an overused Christianeze/Religio-babel term. What I mean here is that I had a strong feeling that I knew did not originate from me.
