• “Maturity starts with the willingness to give oneself.” – Elisabeth Elliot (Let Me Be a Woman)

Won Without Words by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/08/11

“Sweetheart, wake up!”

“Hmmm?”

“Don’t you remember? The pastor said that the man of the house should wake up early to read the Bible!”

(Snore)

“Harry, wake up! This is gonna be a Christian house whether you like it or not!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Have you ever tried to change your mate into a more spiritual person? When a wife tries to take on this kind of “fix it” project, her focus is on something she can’t do anything about—her husband’s heart. It takes her mind off something she can do something about—cooperating with the Holy Spirit in changing her own heart.

The apostle Peter advises wives to be submissive, even to unbelieving husbands. Then he explains why in 1 Peter 3: “so that, if any of them do not believe the Word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives.”

Have you been approaching your husband with nagging words or with godly behavior?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
