Husbands, Love Your Wives: 8 Ways To Do So

We find ourselves between two important national holidays: Mother's Day and Father's Day. As such it is right that we regularly take time to focus on marriage, family, and parenting. In a recent article at the Ligonier Ministries website, William Boekestein offers 8 admonitions for how husbands ought to love their wife. I think the following is helpful. Here is the basic outline:

1. Love Her Heart - Emotional Love
2. Love Her Mind - Intellectual Love
3. Love Her Body - Physical Love
4. Love Her Soul - Spiritual Love
5. Love Her Relationships - Relational Love
6. Love Her Humanity - Realistic Love
7. Love Her Calling - Supportive Love
8. Love Her Maker - Theological Love
