I moved from broken to beautiful, and you can too. I’ve endured many challenges and trials in my lifetime and have experienced fear, anger, discouragement, depression, and at times even despair. I struggled to forgive God and those who hurt me. I understand those emotions. Through those difficulties, God gave me a compassion for people and a desire to help others move from broken to beautiful.

Does Your Spouse Love You?

Resized Yvonne at Advanced CCC Ephesians 5:28: “Husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.”

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the USA. You probably know a domestic violence victim, or you may be one yourself.

Unfortunately, domestic violence occurs in so called “Christian” homes. Batterers use “submission” as their excuse to abuse their spouses. Domestic violence can be verbal, emotional, physical, or financial.

As today’s Bible verse says, “Husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies.”

If a man loves his wife as his own body, he has neither reason nor excuse to punch, kick, spit on, curse, threaten, humiliate, or hurt his wife in any way.

A woman, who loves and respects her husband and herself, cannot allow her husband to be abusive. That gives him permission to sin against her and God.

In addition to sinning, the abusive spouse also breaks the law and commits a crime.

If you want a Christian home, you teach your children by your example how to love and respect each other. That way, little boys won’t grow up thinking it’s all right to batter women to get their way. Little girls won’t grow up thinking it’s all right for men to humiliate and hurt them.

Dear God, help me love and respect others and myself. Amen.

Application: What will you do this week to be a role model of love and respect?
