“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” – Genesis 2:24
A boy responded disrespectfully to his mother, and his dad responded this way:
“Son, when you disrespected your mother, you sinned against God because God says you are to honor her (Exodus 20:12). You’re going to have to answer to God for that. And you sinned against her, and you’re going to have to answer to her for that.”
But then he added, “Not only is she your mother, she’s my wife. And you’re not going to talk that way to my wife. Now you’ve got me to deal with because you have disrespected my wife.”
What kind of lesson is that to a youngster? For a husband to protect his wife is one of the greatest lessons I have ever heard in my life!
