A4P Guest: I am married and have two little kids. My wife and I don’t seem to get along these days because of her character.
A4P: What is her character like?
A4P Guest: I can’t even characterize her in one way because she changes every day. When I feel like she is happy, I find her being sad and I don’t even know what to do with her. I can’t predict her mood. What do I need to do?
A4P: Oh, my dear brother, this is a very common character of most women. And the word of God doesn’t command you to predict your wife or figure her out but love her. I know, it is hard to love her when you don’t know what is going on with her. But God knows how to help you to love her in the middle of her ever changing mood. So, the best thing for you to do is to cling to God. He is the only One who can help you live with her.
“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them (with your wives) according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.” (1 Peter 3:7) –
“Dwell with them according to knowledge” – and this knowledge and understanding can only be found in God.
So, the more intimate you become with God, His Spirit and Word, the more knowledgeable you’ll become to know and understand your wife. There is no other way than this if you want to live in peace with her. May God help you! ///
