Uncommen Vision for Husbands

“And the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.’” — Genesis 2:18

In the beginning of time, the scriptures tell us that God created the body of the man named Adam from dirt. Then God breathed His breath into Adam’s nostrils, which gave Adam a mind, a will, and emotions. (Genesis 2:7). Deliberately, God created the man first. He had a specific purpose for Adam.

Uncommen Goals: Husbands

I’ve been married 30 years, and through those years I’ve seen all kinds of marriages around me. I’ve seen people that have been together for 40+ years that are really bad examples of marriage. I’ve seen people married for three months and it looks like they’ve been together forever.

We had a habit of putting all the furniture outside and hosing down the house whenever we were home for the summer. One day as we were returning the furniture to their rightful place, it rained and her favorite couch got soaked.

In Sickness and in Health

I recently had the unpleasant experience of my husband being ill for nearly two years. He was diagnosed with an abdominal hernia, the symptoms of which escalated rapidly from the onset of diagnosis.

Because his work included lifting heavy weights, I tried to show him that it was better to lift with his knees as opposed to his method of lifting with his back. He completely ignored me. His diet was another concern of mine.

Adam, Where Art Thou

In Genesis 3:6, God asks this question of Adam. I do not believe that He asked because He did not know where Adam was, but rather to bring Adam to a confession of his current state. It is in the acknowledging of your current state that you can identify what needs to be groomed, pruned or fixed. Generally speaking, we have held men in such bondage that they are unable to admit a fault, to say they are sorry, to cry, etc., because in the eyes of society – they are not real men if they do these things.
