One of the hardest things about truly loving your wife is that you have to do it everyday, day after day. While everything we do for our wives is kind of like a deposit we make in our love account, if we don’t keep making deposits, we spend some of it, it dwindles and loses its effect.
Zig Ziglar was quoted saying, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, either does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
It’s the same with working on our relationships with our wives. We have to do it daily. We have to recommit each morning to living in a way that will show our wives we love them. We have to be kind to them. We have to listen to them. We have to work diligently on meeting their needs.
We cannot get lazy. We can’t think that we don’t have to tell them we love them today. We just said it yesterday. We can’t say we are too tired to spend time with them. We spent time with them yesterday.
It is about making a life commitment. It is about staying true to the commitment we made when we asked them to marry us. Although it is a constant and never ending effort, it is not drudgery. The things that have the most value take great effort. They take work. This is an opportunity you have to make your marriage great. It is your opportunity to be a great husband. Do it everyday.
