My blogging buddy Sara is joining me in my "revolution" for our husbands. She had a great post today regarding this subject and I asked her if I could post a checklist she received from a Titus 2 Woman's Group. She keeps the checklist in her Bible and refers to it daily as a reminder of how to treat her husband.
I think the list is great and I'm going to print it out...maybe even make it into a bookmark...and put it in my Bible and check it daily as I do my devotions. I think it might even be a good idea to have one posted where our children can see it as well!
Below is the list and if you haven't visited Sara's blog, please do so! She has a great list of books also on the same subject that just might help us all out.
Do I remember his requests?
Do I make excuses?
Am I seeking to be reverent?
Am I seeking to be helpful?
Do I forget him?
Do I seek to do him good and not evil all of his days?
Do I seek to love him?
Do I seek to bear all things with him?
Do I seek to be hopeful toward him?
Do I treat him as the lord of my home and life?
Am I trustworthy?
Do I withhold myself from him?
Do I roll my eyes at him?
Do I seek to affirm him?
Do I badmouth him anywhere?
Do I murmur in my heart against him?
Do I complain about him to others?
Do I mock him?
Do I listen to him or do I tune him out?
Do I prefer him? Does he know it?
Do I pray for him?
Am I helping him or hindering him?
And finally, here's a verse that goes along with our revolution. I love it in the King James.
Titus 2:5 "To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."
