Dear Married Man

Almost everyday in the midst of many Christian songs, I intentionally listen to the song “Better Man” by the country group Little Big Town.

Why? Because I want to remind myself what I’ve seen over and over again in counsel situations. I’ve looked in the face of so many “used to be married” eyes where one’s spouse is just crying and praying that the love of their life would just seek to be a “Better Man.”

Listen, marriage can’t work unless you work at it. Men there comes a point you need to wake up, grow up, and step up. If you want to be respected then start living respectable. If you want that lady to stay by your side, then be her fearless and spiritual leader. Learn how to love her unconditionally and presently.

I’ve seen many married women that never gave up, but eventually did give out. If this message just saves one marriage it was worth every word. Trust me, I’ve run into way too many men that aren’t willing to listen until it’s too late.

Husbands love your wife as if it were the last day of your life. Don’t take them for granted and don’t ignore the signs that “YOU” need to change. And by the way, real change happens when you get over your pride, get down on your knees, and ask God to help you become the man you were created to be.

Oh, and know that your wife is not looking for you to fix her. She just needs to know she is loved and worth fighting for daily.”Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25)
