NEW SERIES :12 Common Mistakes Men Make - Praise Fowowe
12Common Mistakes Married Men Make
He never saw his father serve his mother so how could he be expected to be romantic? He never saw his father in the kitchen so how can you expect him to serve her breakfast in bed? His perception of himself as a husband is summarized as ‘I am the lion of the tribe of my home’ so he expects compliance with instructions and believes he has absolute powers. Every decree he makes is meant to favor his course and strengthen his rulership.
He joined his father in front of the TV while his sister worked with mum in the kitchen so he had no idea of what it means to cook because it was classified as ‘women’s work’ Now he is so frustrated with his wife because he couldn’t understand why she would want to improve herself professionally and doesn’t even understand her quest to develop herself.
He is at a lose on how to relate with her because she appears to be more successful and so he is threatened by her success that he is looking for every means to cut down her ‘excesses’. ‘She no longer respects me’ he says because he feels she has nothing to offer her as a result never expects her to challenge his decisions.
He is combining too many jobs that he has no time for his family because as the head he believes he must have enough money to retain his headship.
He doesn’t understand what it means to be a 21st century man because he was mentored by a 19th century man who had little or no respect for a woman. His favorite scriptural reference is ‘A woman is meant to submit’ forgetting that a woman that is truly loved naturally submits. Of course he doesn’t know what true love means because the way of love is quite difficult to a man that has his ego to protect. Are you a true husband who serves his woman in humility or you are threatened by the success of your wife? What manner of man are you?
Prayers; Lord enlarge my heart to reflect you and see things the way you see them
