Three Things Every Wife Wants Her Husband To Say

November 4, 2001 FBC, Chester, Illinois Mike Fogerson, Speaker

Introduction:

1. Pam and I went to a rummage sale and happened upon dry cleaning box.

A Inside was a beautiful wedding dress.

a On the box, in a woman’s handwriting was a note.

b "One wedding dress, size 10. Worn only once on accident."

B A woman was cleaning out her closet and she came up on her wedding dress and for chuckles and grins....she tried it on.

a Over the years she had put on a little weight and the old dress didn’t fit. She began to weep.

b Her husband came to see what was wrong and saw that the dress was snug. And w/o thinking he said, "Honey, don’t cry. We’ll go buy you a bigger one."

*Sometimes, guys say the dandiest things.

2 Three things every wife wants her husband to say.

A Heb. 13:4

HEB 13:4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

a God wanted marriages to be honored by everybody. (ETS)

b A healthy marriage takes lots of work. (ESS)

B HUSBANDS. I hope you’ll take this message to heart by saying one of these things to your wife this week. (Objective)

a Who will say what needs to be said? (Probing Question)

b Let’s look at three things that every wife wants to hear her husband say.

*pray

1 "No man is luckier than I am."

A Can you imagine stumbling across a large ruby?

a Excited! Your world will forever be changed for the better!

b You would go get appraised, insured, irreplaceable, protect and secure it. Lock it up. Hired an armed guard.

B Prov. 31:10-11

PR 31:10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.

11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.

a An honorable, noble, virtuous, strong wife is a rare, rare thing.

(A dishonorable, shameful, terrible wife is a dime a dozen.)

b The husband of a noble wife is blessed.

C If you have an excellent wife, you have been doubly blessed. (God doesn’t have to be singularly good to any of us. You could have married a skizzer.)

a No one can take your wife’s place. (Irreplaceable!)

b Look over at your wife and say, "No man is luckier than I am."

T.S.: So far so good. Let’s look at something else our wives want to hear from us.

2 Hone, is there anything I can do for you?

A Billy Graham’s wife, Ruth, tells a beautiful story about her parents Dr. Nelson & Mrs. Virgina Bell.

a They had been married for years and did as much as possible together.

b On day, Ruth Graham went into her elderly parents house to check on them and she found her father on his hands and knees putting Mrs. Bell’s stocking on her feet.

*Dr. Bell looked at his daughter and said, "The greatest privilege of my life is taking care of your mother."

B There is a golden rule.

Matthew 7:12 (quickview) 

[12] So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

a In marriage there is a platinum rule you can live by.

"Do unto your wife as she wants done unto her."

b The greatest privilege in your life is to take care of your wife’s needs.
