Be a Guardian
By David Chadwick
In Bible times, for a city to be safe, there needed to be strong walls erected around the city. When an enemy attacked a city, he would first lay siege against the walls. The stronger the walls, the stronger a city would be. Conversely, the weaker the walls, the weaker the city.
A way for a husband to honor his wife is to learn to be a guardian of the walls he builds around his marriage and family.
These walls need to be impregnable against the enemy, the devil. The husband knows his schemes. The devil will not win. Temptation is recognized (Matthew 6:13). Immorality is fled from (1 Corinthians 6:18). The marriage and family are led in the paths of righteousness for the Lord’s sake (Psalm 23:3).
The husband knows his wife’s weaknesses. Regularly and spiritually, he walks her walls. He warns her when he sees an attack brewing.
The husband knows his kids’ weaknesses. He talks with them and hears their fears. He is aware of their hurts, hang-ups, and habits. He prays constantly for them.
Husbands, you are called to be the guardians of your marriage and family.
If you don’t do it, who will?
Recover the lost art of honor – and improve your relationships!
Strong, healthy relationships require honor –because people must treat each other with respect in order to develop trust and love. That’s why the Bible commands us to honor our brothers and sisters in Christ.
But that’s not always easy – especially when others frustrate us.
We want to help you improve your relationships – including your marriage – with The Lost Art of Honor, a new CD series from David and Marilynn Chadwick.
