Would you be willing to die for your wife?


Hiya all!

This post was published last year and as I read it again, I realised that it is still a valid question especially after reading the interview HERE and in light of the message of Easter and the responsibility of a husband to his wife.... Hope you are blessed as you read..


 As a guy can you go all the way for your wife? And as a woman, you need to ask yourself - Does he seem like the person that can or would be willing to die for me?

Ladies and gentlemen, remember that the bible says that the husband must love his wife like Christ loved the church and laid down His life for it (Ephesians 5:25).... I hope he is willing to die for you?

*Thinking* - Do you think a man would be willing to die for his wife in today's world? Are there men like that?

There are some people who love their children so much that they wouldn't hesitate to give up their own lives for their wellbeing. I know a number of parents who have been put to the test and have put their lives on the line or their health at risk in order to save their children.

Infact there are some children who love their parents so much that they wouldn't mind stepping in line to save their lives. Once, while growing up, my mum fell ill (a parent falling ill can be one of the most frightening of things for children) and I remember my brother praying desperately in his childhood adoration love for his mum, that the sickness would be transferred to him so that she wouldn't have to suffer (to God be the glory, it was only mild malaria and she soon recovered - I am happy to say that both mother and brother are alive and hearty :-D )

Such is the kind of love that can exist between two human beings.. So, it's possible.

So I guess the question of the day would be "Do you think your man would be willing to lay his life for you?" / As a man, would you be willing to lay down your life for your wife?



  1. I once heard someone saying: "If you're willing to lay down your life for your wife, why don't you lay down the remote and start talking to her"?

    I like this quote because it shows that sacrifice starts with small inconveniences. I guess most of us will never have to actually die dramatically for a loved one. This usually happens in Hollywood movies, yet thank God most of us are spared from these extreme situations. So let's start small-small :) But thanks for the reminder, it made me think how far I would go!!

    Love your brother's spirit though hehe I'm sure he would do the same for you! ;)

  2. You are very right Sebs, it's with the small small things! If you cannot lay down the remote to talk to your wife, dying might just be a longgggg short lol..

    God will help us!

    Lol@brother for me, erhmm, maybe not - I did not labour hours to bring him forth.. But he is lovely all the same :-)


You know you want to say something :-)
