"A sentence from Psalm 101 has been both challenging and convicting for me: 'I will walk in my house with blameless heart' (Psalm 101:2). When God speaks to be about being more loving, this verse reminds me to make application in my family first--and then to others. It forces me to ask, 'Am I more spiritual, more loving, or more fun somewhere else? Who gets my best--my family or others?" ~ Jean Fleming ~

"What higher motive could there be for the husband to love his wife? By loving her as Christ loved the church, he honors Christ in the most direct and graphic way. He becomes the embodiment of Christ's love to his own wife, a living example to the rest of his family, a channel of blessing to his entire household, and a powerful testimony to a watching world."
~ John MacArthur ~
"Let each one of you ...so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. Children, obey your parents in the Lord...Fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord."
