The funniest thing happened the other day and just thought that it would make a great post. Well, at least in my head.
As I was walking with my mother to the stage, a mother hen and her chicks drew our attention. Later, we spotted the rooster coming from no where as a car drove by the hen and her young ones. It quickly ran towards them and puffed up, made a few noises in a way to shield them of the sought.
The same thing happened when a dog passed by as well. Trying to act all macho and hinder anyone and anything to come close to his pips.
To put it into perspective, this scenario made me look into the role of a man in Marriage:
1: Be a leader. The Scriptures provide a clear organizational structure for a marriage. Following are a couple of typical Scriptures:
But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:3).
2: Love your wife unconditionally. Ephesians 5:25 reads, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her.” Your unconditional acceptance of your wife is not based upon her performance, but on her worth as God’s gift to you. If you want to love your wife unconditionally, always be sure her emotional tank is full. One of the best ways to do that is to affirm her constantly. Let her know verbally that you value her, respect her, and love her. I have discovered that I simply cannot do that enough.
3: Serve your wife. According to the New Testament, being head of your wife does not mean being her master, but her servant. Again, Christ is our model for this type of leadership. Jesus did not just talk about serving; He demonstrated it when he washed His disciples’ feet (John 13:1-17). Christ, the Head of the Church, took on the very nature of a servant when He was made in human likeness (Philippians 2:7).
I just thought it should be out there.. as the, ‘jogoo wa nyumba’ (The rooster of the house.) According to what our master says.
Have a lovely day flowers 🙂
