Scripture:- Ephesians 5:22-33

Topic:- Knowing A Man’s Ways

Text:- Ephesians 5:33

A woman in the city went one morning to her husband’s Office to report him to his boss. She told her husband’s boss how her husband usually squandered his N60,000 salary and only gave her N30,000 for upkeep. After her narration, the boss told her to come back on the last day of the month.
On the set day, she arrived as planned. The boss called the husband and they all sat down in the boss’ office. The boss started,’ Mr. Mike, you wife reported to me some days ago that you squander your salary outside and only give the family N30,000 for upkeep.
So right now, I’m going to personally hand over your salaries to her from today henceforth.’ ‘How much is you transportation to work daily?’, the boss asked. ‘N900 sir’, Mr. Mike replied. The boss handed over N19,800 to Mr. Mike. ‘That should take you for 22 days’.
‘Do you take breakfast at home?’, the boss continued. ‘No sir, I leave home very early to beat traffic jam’. ‘How much do you spend on breakfast and lunch daily?’ ‘N500 sir’,replied Mr. Mike. The boss handed over N11,000 to Mr. Mike.
‘Who pays the children’s school fees’, the boss asked facing Mrs. Mike. ‘He does’, she replied pointing at Mr. Mike.
‘How much is the school fees and how many kids have you?’ ‘N30,000 per term for the two kids we have?’
‘In other words, you save N10,000 monthly for each term’s school fees right?’ ‘Yes sir’, replied Mr. Mike. Once again, the boss handed N10,000 to him.
‘Who pays the rent and how much is it?’ ‘I do sir. The rent is N36,000 per annum.’ Mr. Mike replied. ‘That’s N3,000 monthly right?’, the boss added as he handed over N3,000 to Mr. Mike.
‘I don’t want to ask about clothings, electricity bills,etc as I know both of you might be handling that’, the boss said as he handed over N16,200 to Mrs. Mike.
‘What’s this for sir’, Mrs. Mike asked surprised. ‘Money for upkeep’, the boss replied her. ‘But it wouldn’t take us anywhere’, she exclaimed. ‘So why don’t you appreciate the N30, 000 your husband sacrifices for you monthly’, the boss asked. The woman hugged her husband tightly and the rest is history.

A lot of women don’t know what their husbands sacrifice to put food on the table. Most times, they go hungry. Sometimes, they swallow their pride and engage in menial and debasing jobs just so their families can eat. A lot of times, they can’t even buy good clothes to wear rather they sacrifice so that their wives and kids can get one.
A man might not tell you what he goes through to get you the cash he gives to you as telling you might make you start underrating his person but to tell you the truth, men go through a lot and need to be appreciated.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, fill me and empower me to love my spouse as commanded by You henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
