Some years ago a woman married an overbearing man. That man printed up a list of rules he “required” her to follow...everything from how to cook pancakes, hang his shirts, clean the house, what she could and couldn’t wear, etc. As a Christian lady, she obeyed. However, when the man died, some years later she met and married a fine Christian man who loved her just as she was. One day she “discovered” the old list from her previous marriage, and realized...she was doing everything on the list...but this time she was doing them because she wanted to...because she loved to please her husband...and because he loved and respected her.

(From a sermon by Mike Gilbert, "A Man For All Seasons" 7/19/08)
