In the early years of my marriage I didn’t know much about serving. I knew what I expected of my wife and was disappointed when she did not live up to my expectations. I’m sure she must have been just as frustrated with me because I know that I did not meet her expectations. Sadly, we had approached our marriage with a non-biblical attitude.
When I finally learned that love and service is the hallmark of a Christian husband, it did not take my wife long to change her attitude toward me. Once we learned to serve each other, the emotional climate of our marriage changed dramatically. Having the attitude of Christ is the key to a successful marriage. He came to serve.
