The Excellent Wife: Chapter 3





How godly we become depends on how hard we work at it.

How hard you work at putting on the right thoughts and actions will directly affect how much like the Lord Jesus Christ you become in this life.



Ouch, OUCH, O.U.C.H.

I don't have time for a detailed post, but I can pretty much sum up my reaction to this chapter in a couple of sentences.

Being an excellent wife will not come naturally. It requires that I roll up my sleeves and get to work.

I'm heading out of town for the weekend, but look forward to reading what everyone else has to say on this chapter.

Short but definitely worth reflecting on! I like the metaphor of rolling up your sleeves - we appreciate & value the stuff we worked hard at a lot more! Have a great trip - hubbs & I are headed to our first marriage conference - perfect timing!!

Short but sweet. Even in your quick post, you managed to distill the heart of the chapter!

So true, discipline on our part is required, that spoke to me as well in this chapter. Hope you had a good weekend.

Ouch. It doesn't come naturally, but is so worth chasing the un-natural so that God may be revealed.

Have a great trip!
