Never bend. Know what your convictions are and do not change them with the times. Do not try to join in sinful, worldly living just to be friends with your children. You are the Mother. You are the example. You must stay strong and live out a godly, holy life before your family. Do not bend to their childish, immature worldly whims.
Dear Husbands, I ve heard from your wife---she needs your attention. She tells me she s lonely. She feels isolated and ignored. Her life is wrapped around children, work, and/or household chores. She used to feel in love with life, and in love with you, but now she feels worthless and uninteresting. She feels like she s forgotten how to have fun.
It’s easier to do the right thing when our spouse does the right thing. We can usually respond correctly in those circumstances, can’t we? What about when your husband or wife isn’t being good to you . . . isn’t doing what is right? Much, much tougher. And, if we’re honest, we often cut ourselves a little slack when this happens, listening to the voice that says, “I’m justified in responding the way I did because of what he/she did.” MatthewLJacobson.com
