He looks upon his wife as his most trusted confidants!
Or do you repeat every confidence he speaks to you?
I have heard too many things over the years that I believe were meant
To be private, and unreported.
We must make allowances for some of these things that are spoken;
They may be spoken while tired or angry!
We can all attest to saying something we did not mean to say!
So we must remember that when our Husbands speak in confidence to us,
We are not given the liberty to repeat it!
If you are not sure if it is something you should repeat;
Ask Your Husband if you should mention it to anyone?
I would rather ask him if I should repeat something, then to feel
Very bad that I broke confidence!
He needs to know that He can trust you with his sorrow or frustration!
We all need a safe place to speak about such things!
By keeping confidence you are showing respect for your Husbands name!
We do not want to be the ones bringing reproach upon our own Husbands
A good name is very valuable...
An older woman many years ago told me this very statement!
Are you guilty?
We have even done this all in the name of fun!
A man needs to be shown honor and integrity!
And if you make light or fun of his sharing his heart he will stop!
Then you whine and complain He never tells me anything.
If you are guilty of this type of behavior ask him to forgive you!
Ask the Lord to forgive you!
We need to learn to ZIP it...
Just because they said it; does not give us permission to repeat it!
And if you are in the habit of speaking badly about your Husband to yourself
Or to any of the others listed below
Parents, or children, or girlfriends, you are sinning!
As an older woman I beseech you to stop this disrespecting
Of Your Husband...
Ask the Lord to set a guard over your mouth!
