Live Your Faith


Six ways to love your wife

Key Bible Verse: Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1, NIV)

Dig Deeper: Matthew 20:25-28

Your wife needs you to be the best Christian you can be. Let your wife and children see that effort. And then help them do the same.

  • Let your wife and kids see and hear you pray.
  • Seek forgiveness when you mess up.
  • Give sacrificially to the church and other Christ-honouring causes.
  • Read the Bible.
  • Sing praise songs.
  • Volunteer.
  • Tell the truth.
  • Meet regularly in small-group for Bible study.
  • Seek wise Christian counsel when you face a tough challenge.
  • Keep your pride in check.
  • Flee sexual immorality.
  • Tell others about Jesus.

Let your family see you do those things. Encourage them to do the same. Do, model, teach.
