King and Not Tyrant
As I have mentioned in my past blogs and talks, men are called to be kings. Kings lead with tenderness, firmness and integrity. But when a man abuses his kingship and becomes abusive, he becomes a tyrant.
Nobody wants a tyrant as a king. We have read it in history and saw tyrant leadership in the movies. People would wish that a tyrant’s rule will end quickly. It is the same with our leadership at home. Are you a tyrant or a king?
1. You lack interest in your wife’s input and would disregard her feelings.
2. He is the only one who makes the decision and would not consult his wife and kids about his thoughts before making a decision.
3. He does not trust anyone.
4. He has the need for control.
On the other hand a king is someone :
1. Who loves sacrificially.
2. Who is understanding or tries to understand his wife and kids.
3. Who makes time for the family.
4. Who provides for his family. ( Spiritual, financial and emotional needs)
Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her…” I do hope we would all embrace our roles as kings of the house
