Water Your Own Grass

I read a blog this morning by someone I know and care for about crossing the line. It brought up a lot of feelings. Then I heard a message by Dennis Rainey on Z88.3 Radio about how wives should know they are secure, loved.

“So what,” you may be thinking.

Love between a man and woman is sacred.

Even Christians, or anyone out there who may think they have willpower made of kryptonite, are still flesh and blood. We need to know there is someone in our lives who loves us more than others, protects us, values us, and would never cause us harm or heartache.

If you have been joined with someone, cherish that person. Let them know every day that they are loved by you. Never think life could be better with someone else. Don’t give in to that temptation.

Remember, the grass is greener on the side it’s watered. Wash your Bride daily in the Word, in love, in encouragement. Let her know you are amazed by her beauty. Nurture the love that is sacred!

And, because I sometimes get hit with men saying “What about us?”

Love your wife as Christ loves the church, so much that He gave His life for us.

Men are the protectors, the ones called to tend to their Precious Garden of Love.

Love her dearly, faithfully, and see if you get results you hope to have and more.

Always water your own grass, joyfully stay on your side of the fence and nurture your own Love with every part of your being.

    An outstanding blog post which is soaked in Scripture:

    Matthew 7:12 – “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law & the Prophets.”

    1 Corinthians 13:13 – “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
