So you want a better wife?

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord” Proverbs 18:22

Gratitude is the greatest gift to perspective.

However guys, if you are ever tempted to want to improve your wife I have found the worlds greatest wife-improvement programme. It goes like this:

Step 1 Look at self: what can I do to be a better husband?
Step 2 Look at her: what can better husband do to make wife’s world a better place
Step 3 Look at wife and notice smile!

Result … better wife.

“Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” Galatians 6:7

Every marriage will face its challenges. Every couple will find the temptation to compare ones partner with others. The greatest antidote to this common temptation is not to dwell so much on what he or she could do to be a better partner for you but rather change that which you can – YOU!  Improve your partners’ world and they will change to the conditions you create for them. Change of words, activities and attitudes will change both your worlds.  This is gratitude in action.

Oh … and TALK. Never shut down lines of communication. If the topic is inappropriate to talk to your partner about then talk to your closest same gender confidant.  A better life …
