Don't Even Think About It!

"Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her"––that's what St. Paul says (Ephesians 5:25).

Well, that's a tall order, isn't it? Let me tell you what it means in daily life.

I'm forbidden from drinking milk straight from the carton and dipping my bread into the butter jar. Wife's orders. I know, it's rough.

While I could get away with it when she's not around, I choose not to even think about it.
It's not much to ask, is it? 

If we can get the seemingly insignificant stuff right first, the hard stuff becomes a little easier.

Jesus died on the cross for his bride, the Church. I can at least be a little more careful with the milk carton.
