Are you an Active Helpmate or
a Source of Frustration?
When your husband asks you to do something, even something as simple as where to park your car when you get home, do you choose to submit to him or do you choose to ignore him because you think you should be able to do what you want to? I was faced with this challenge just the other day. I chose to park where I wanted to. After all, I’m not a child and I don’t need to be told where to park my vehicle. Of course world war three soon took hold of our happy day and I realized fast that my heart was not in the right place.
“An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who causes shame is like rottenness in his bones.” ~ Proverbs 12:4
Have you been here?
He wasn’t trying to control me (even though I thought he was). He simply had a project in mind and needed my vehicle moved. Though he could have said this to me, sometimes the need to just doesn’t cross his mind. He is a guy after all. They are not good at multitasking like we are.
A lesson learned!
I have learned that though I don’t always know the “why’s,” accommodating him means I am showing him respect. And respect is his love language. So…. Are you an active help-mate or a sourse of frustration? Leave your comments. I’m curious to see if I am the only one who struggles in this area. 🙂
