B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_I appreciate this piece by Tullian. It is about a husband who announces that he is going to leave his wife. The wife doesn’t react but instead just keeps loving her husband. In the end, the husband returned physically and emotionally. Even though this is about a husband leaving his wife, the principle Tullian communicates might be applied in our lives at least on a weekly basis. Not that our spouses routinely want to leave us (hopefully). But, all of our mates have difficult days when they can’t seem to love us the way we’d like. The same principle illustrated in this piece needs to be applied in our marriages and lives. As we respond graciously, those we love will eventually come back.

Stephen Altrogge suggests that we should get rid of the word “should.” I’m not sure I completely buy what he’s suggesting.

Finally, I’ve said before that parents have the primary responsibility of discipling their children. This often happens best not as our children are whisked away to youth ministries but rather as they worship and serve with their parents in church. I realize that this only works for children whose parents attend church.
