by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – It Begins With Your Husband
Editor’s note: While the idea of treating others like you like to be treated is a good one Nancy takes it too far. Sorry, but if your husband is verbally abusing you the answer is not be nicer to him! It’s not going to convict him, or force him to change. Chances are he’ll just get worse because you’re telling him that however he treats you is alright with you. This is not what healthy emotional boundaries in marriage relationships look like!
Every principle begins in the home. More importantly, it begins with our marriage relationship.
There can be times when you feel dissatisfied with the way your husband treats you. You feel he forgets about you. He doesn’t treat you with love and passion. He says derogatory words to you. In fact, you just feel like forgetting about him!
But what about the golden rule? It starts with me. It starts with you. When you do to your husband the things you’d love him to do to you, you’ll be amazed how he will change. Maybe not all at once. But keep doing all the lovely things you want him to do to you and you will notice changes. Remember, it is an eternal principle that works!
Do you notice the Scripture says ALL THINGS! Not some things. Start today doing ALL the things to your husband that you want him to do to you. Where do you feel most hurt or even bitter? Begin right in this most difficult place and to do to him what you long for him to do to you.
