The Christian Marriage Bloggers Association has challenged bloggers to publish a new post every day for thirteen days. This is the 13th and final day of the challenge. If you missed the previous posts in this series, follow the links at the end of this post.
Continuing my theme of the Boy Scout Law applied to Christian husbands, today is:
A Husband Is Reverent
Confession time. Sometimes I need to be reminded to show more reverence. Sometimes I do inappropriate things at inappropriate times. Sometimes I'm downright irreverent.
As a husband and father (and God-appointed spiritual leader), I need to work on the reverence thing. I have to show appropriate respect to God at all times.
This means that I have to:
- Guard my language. The easiest way to be irreverent is to let bad language fly from my mouth.
- Attend church. Don't try to get out of it, being a poor example for my family.
- Establish a more active prayer life. Pray for and with my wife and family. Instill in my children the right way to pray.
- Be vigil about my personal devotional time (as well as our couple devotional time). By spending a set time with the Lord each day, I place my day in His hands. I have more focus.
This husband is reverent. Well, at least I'm working on it.
