The Lean


I just attended a ministers’ appreciation luncheon hosted by Kentucky Christian University. Some ministers’ spouses were also in attendance.

The speaker, Bob Russell, talked about some of the mistakes he made in ministry, and how he had learned from them. One of the mistakes that he mentioned was not making his family enough of a priority. He urged those in attendance not to make that same mistake, reminding them that their spouse would be there for them when others let them down.

As Bob talked about the importance of giving special attention to your mate, a wife sitting directly in front of me leaned slightly into her husband. There was no look, no words—just a lean.

But it was enough to make me think that the point was well-taken.

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”—Ephesians 5:21.
