    Husbands, continue loving your wives,
    just as the Christ also loved the congregation and gave himself up for it.


    Eph. 5:25.

    In the family, a husband is to love his wife “as the Christ does the congregation.” (Eph. 5:28, 29) A husband must imitate the self-sacrificing love of Christ by putting his wife’s needs and interests ahead of his own.

    Some men may find it difficult to show such love, perhaps because they were not raised in an environment where treating others fairly and lovingly was valued. It may be difficult for them to unlearn bad habits, but they must make these changes in order to obey the law of the Christ.

    A husband who shows self-sacrificing love gains his wife’s respect. A father who truly loves his children would never abuse them by what he says or does. (Eph. 4:31)

    Instead, he expresses his love and approval in ways that make his children feel safe and secure. Such a father gains the love and trust of his children.
