Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly. Colossians 3:19 (NLT)
The verse above is not a suggestion, but a command. The Bible tells us that a husband should love his wife and never treat her harshly. The implication here is that this is something that must be practiced continuously. To show the importance of treating your wife well, the Bible points out that mistreating your wife can hinder your prayers (1 Peter 3:7). So, what are some simple things you can do to demonstrate your love for your wife? You can spend quality time with her, enjoying each other’s company. You can leave her notes about the different things you love about her. You can give her a hug when she is feeling down. You can help around the house when she asks or take the initiative to do things she normally asks you to do without being asked. You can give her tokens of affection on a regular basis. You should love your wife just as Jesus loves the Church.
