I try to prioritize my life roles in order of importance. The list goes like this; Follower of Christ, husband, father, family member, friend, pastor. As you can tell by where it landed that I think being a good husband is my most important role behind following Christ. It doesn’t mean I am always perfect at it but I do try to structure my life so that I can help myself be a good husband.
Today my friend Ron Moore who works with facilities at our church had a tough day, he had to say goodbye to his wife. She passed away last Thursday from a long bout with cancer just two weeks after she was told she had 4-6 months to live. Through this whole process it has been incredible to watch Ron love his wife. He never once seemed tired or defeated. He never seemed to doubt God’s plan. He always praised his wife and kept pursuing her and believing in her. I want to be like that. It has been neat to see and I have been taking notes. Thanks Ron.
