I am going to be sharing quotes from a very good book called, "The Family" by J.R. Miller. It is a lovely book originally published in 1882! I have read many things by J.R. Miller, I love his writings. I hope you are encouraged and challenged by the following quote taken from "The Family"
"Every true wife makes her husband's interests her own. While he lives for her, carrying her image in his heart and toiling for her all the days, she thinks only of what will do him good. When burdens press upon him she tries to lighten them by sympathy, be cheer, by inspiration of love. She enters with zest and enthusiasm into all his plans. She is never a weight to drag him down; she is strength in his heart to help him ever to do nobler and better things."
She what I'm saying? Quite convicting, isn't it?
Questions to ask ourselves.
Do I make his interests my own?
When he is heavy laden do I try to lighten his load or am I bothered because I have my own burdens, thank you very much!?
Do I enter with zest into HIS plans?
