I am having little problem with my wife. I don’t complain on whatever she does or eats at home but to my side, she always complain on my activities at home. Even when I want to eat any food, she talk to me anyhow.
If my wife is not appreciating and not satisfied with what I am doing at home, what will I do?
A: Brother, you have been jailed o. You probably committed a small offence and you didn’t sort it out in time and now it has coloured everything you do.
Mt 5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Mt 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
Usually, when everything is wrong between two persons, it’s just one thing that actually is wrong but has tinted everything else in bad light.
There was a story of a man who went to a hospital and saw a doctor. His complaint was every part of his body was paining him. He felt pain when he touched any part of his body. After the doctor examined him, it turned out he had a broken right index finger. That was the finger he was using to touch his body and he always felt pain when he used the finger to touch his body.
The cure is to be the doctor now, and find what you have broken in your wife and fix it. There is almost nothing more annoying than a generic “I’m sorry”. It’s a lazy cop out and accomplishes nothing except make her angrier. So, identify what you did wrong by sitting with her and talking and when you do, apologise.
