Serving your Spouse

What would happen in your marriage if you were a true Christian? The word ‘Christian’ means ‘Christ-like.’ The central theme in the life of Christ was service to others. He said, about Himself, “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.” For some people it will take a radical change of attitude for them to become servants. Our society has trained us to be assertive, not to be servants. Servanthood is not a favorite topic for seminars, though it ought to be, for it is the only road to greatness. Here’s an idea: make a list of several things you know that your spouse would like for you to do. Do one of them today, and another tomorrow. The more you become like Christ, the happier you spouse will be.
