12 Common Mistakes Married Men Make - Praise Fowowe
12Common Mistakes Married Men Make – 2 #
1 Misunderstanding Headship in the Home How many times have you used the word “Don’t you know I am the head of this family’? I laugh when I see men drum this into the hears of their women in other to remind them of who calls the shots in the home/ The perception of men especially our African men of the head of the home is someone who brings money and sits like a general in front of the TV reading newspapers and watching the news while everyone runs around to serve him as the commander in chief of the home forces.
As a matter of fact he feels nobody should be able to challenge what he says because he feels he must be right at all times and begins to feel threatened when he has a wife who demands accountability or takes him up in intellectual discussion or seeks to clarify a few issues. Men! Headship in the home isn’t a commandant but a servant leader. A true head serves every member of the family or what do you have in the human head? Eyes – Which means you must be able to provide a vision of a desirable future and lead your family there so what is your family vision?. Nose – How sensitive are you to your wife and children? Do you know when she is not happy and what is responsible? Do you pay attention to what she wears and when to change her wardrobe or are you sensitive enough to know when she isn’t up to sex cos of stress? Ears – Can you hear what God is saying to you about your family or even what your spouse is saying to you and what she is not saying? Can you hear the unspoken noise of her silence or the stress in her diligence or quest to please you? Mouth – How much of a blessing has your mouth been to her and how much of her esteem have you built with your words? If you don’t want a women who would take you up then it pays to marry a deaf and dumb because ‘Headship’ is service; how well have you served your family? to be continued
