Good husband, bad husband
Did you know there is an epic battle going on inside you? A good husband and a bad husband are battling it out for control of your body and mind, and the power to bless or curse you bride.
Okay, maybe I’ve seen too many action movies – but I think the point is valid. On the one hand, we each have the potential to be loving, giving, caring, generous and selfless. On the other hand, we have the potential to be greedy, selfish, manipulative, controlling and spiteful. If you listen, you can hear the fight within yourself at times. One voice is accusing your bride, taking the worst possible view of every word she speaks and every action she takes. The other side sees her through the eyes of love – giving her every benefit of the doubt, and loving her even when she is far from perfect.
If your not intentional about this battle your mood and feelings will determine which you follow, and your bride will experience a confusing mix of loving and unloving behaviour from you. However, if you determine to resist the bad husband, and encourage the good husband, the war will cease to be a stalemate, and the good husband will take the upper hand. Some battles will still go to the bad husband, but those will become fewer and fewer.
