A Man without Honor in His Own House!

From the writings of Sumner Wemp


A man without honor in his own house!


"Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor" Mark 6:4.
As I meditated on this verse it hit me how too often a man, a husband, a father, is not honored or safe in his own house and among his own kin.
To whom honor is due

"Marriage is honorable" Heb 13:4.
We are to "honor all men" and to "honor the king" 1 Peter 2:17.
"Children are to "honor thy father and mother" Mark 10:17.
A man is to "give honor to his wife" 1 Peter 3:7.
"Give everyone what you owe him: if honor, then honor " Rom 13:7.
LOOK for things to admire

One of you wrote me, "Thank you for this message. I need this and more than I know. I realize that the Bible tells me that I am to respect my husband but have been finding this very difficult for good reason. Thank you for helping me to remember to LOOK for things to admire (O dear people, this is the KEY, LOOK FOR THINGS TO ADMIRE AND TELL HIM SO, sumner). Bless you for your words of encouragement."
A man I mentored, rose like a meteor to become Vice President of a corporation. He was admired and praised by all in the business, Sadly, at home his wife noted all of his faults and reminded him of everything. No wonder he became attracted to a lady at the office who admired him and showed it (We do not condone a man to cheat on his wife for any reason). He was starved for admiration and MOST MEN ARE!
O dear ladies, you know how to hornswaggle your husband, how to make him putty in your hand, how to become the queen on the throne at home. Charles Swab, who was known for his leadership in the business world, when asked his secret, he said, "Be lavish with your praise." Dear lady, try that on your husband and see a miracle right before your eyes. You learn this key and use it and it will transform your marriage.
YOU and I must stop quibbling about what our spouses do and begin doing our part and what we know to do to bring real happiness and harmony in our marriages. Now, doesn't that make sense?
How wives get the ATTENTION and men get the ADMIRATION in the next email. Don't miss it. It will transform your living and marriage.

To continue our conversation from above about men cheating on their wives, I would have to say that the man who cheats will be held accountable for that sin and also for all the ramifications that go along with cheating.  As I mentioned in an earlier devotional is that if each one of us would quite focusing on our spouses as the problem and work on getting our lives right before God this world would see a dramatic drop in divorce rates.
