These little things will draw your husband’s heart

You want a quick and easy way to show respect to your husband and improve your marriage?  Just notice a few small things your husband seems to appreciate and then…..do them!  What a concept!  I mean, why wouldn’t we want to please our husbands?  Why wouldn’t we want to be kind and thoughtful?  Colossians 3:12 tells us “as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”  So, if we could do just a couple things differently, in a way that our husbands prefer, why wouldn’t we extend that kindness to them?

Let me give you some examples.  My husband insists that if we load the dishwasher in a certain way, it cleans the silverware better.  (I don’t think it makes any difference!).  But, I do it the way he likes…because it pleases him.  I know my husband loves it when I leave a little note of encouragement for him on the kitchen counter at least once a week.  So I intentionally do that every week.  I know my husband really appreciates a clean kitchen counter, so I try to keep the counters tidy. Why wouldn’t I want to please him in such a small way?  I’m not saying a wife should have no opinion and should simply be a doormat for her husband.  But I think God would be pleased if I stopped only thinking of myself and started thinking a little more about blessing my husband!

How about you?  Could you intentionally take note of a few things your husband really appreciates, and then actually do some of those things?  It would make him feel respected.  It would draw his heart to you. It would likely improve your marriage.  Sometimes, it’s the little things…
