Regardless of your wife’s attitude, she has every right to expect you to repent in earnest. If you’re hesitating, Jesus has a question for you: “Why do you call me, “Lord, Lord” and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46).
We’re offended when our wives confront us, often responding, “Who are you to point fingers? You aren’t perfect, either!”
When your wife has confronted you six times about the same thing, and you still haven’t done anything, she feels you don’t care about her. You aren’t fixing something that’s hurting the relationship.
When his master confronted a bond-servant, that bond-servant would fix things right away because of his deep love for his master. Shouldn’t we husbands do the same for our wives?
