Be Flexible

July 14, 2009

in the generous life

It’s very easy to fall into the habit of doing things the way that is easiest for you or just following your own preferences.  The problem is that you share your life with your husband and he has ways of doing things and preferences as well.  That said, I’m not for anyone being a doormat.  I’m suggesting that you pay enough attention to your husband’s needs and wishes that you can bend to his likes and preferences in reasonable ways and at reasonable times.

If your husband is bothered by loud music first thing in the morning, play something softer (or nothing at all).  Leave the loud stuff for later or slap on some headphones if you need a musical morning jump start.  If he likes a particular brand of toothpaste, buy that brand.  If you can’t stand “his” brand, then buy yours too.  There’s no law against two tubes of toothpaste in the medicine cabinet.  Be flexible enough to make room for both you and your husband’s wants and needs.

… give preference to one another in honor. Romans 12:10  NKJV

Be generous!  Lori <><
