Honor That Man

"Good afternoon sir, I think you should break for lunch, you have been working nonstop since 6am, I made fried rice and chicken, pounded yam and egusi and I also made some fruit salad whichever one you want is fine"
Marcus looked at Julia his secretary, she was 26 and the most beautiful woman he had ever seen and very stylish too. He was a powerful man, the CEO of one of the top 10 companies in Africa and this woman knew how to make him feel powerful. His wife Janice didn't care any longer, all she did these days was to travel and scout for the latest Gucci bags, she didn't care about him any longer.
"Come here" Marcus said to Julia, he held her waist and felt her shudder a bit then he kissed her, she seemed to melt in his hands. Marcus stopped going home after that, their children were away in schools abroad and it took Janice 3 months to realize what happened. Julia was already pregnant by that time and Janice decided to file for divorce, Julia is now the madam of the house while Janice is the former wife.
God hates divorce but the bible also says in Proverbs 14:1 (NLT) A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.
As a wife, you play a major role in deciding whether your marriage works or not, that's why you must pay attention! You stayed with this man when he had nothing and you built this beautiful life together then money came and suddenly you are having fun all over the world and abandoning your husband to the care of maids and secretaries? Don't take that man for granted!
If you are married to a powerful man, please make him feel powerful, that was the sin Vashti committed, she forgot how she became a queen, she became too familiar with her king! No woman should make your husband feel more special than you! That's why he married you!
What were those little things you used to do for him when you first got married? Maybe you used to serve him with the best plates in the house but now you use any plate you can find. Let honor for your husband be a constant factor in all you do. May God help us all in Jesus name.

My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. Shalom
Jesus is Lord
