Every hero has been humbled – A Hero’s Guide to Winning Back Your Wife

Play

Today we hit the third show in our series the Hero’s Guide To Winning Back Your Wife.  “It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.” Saint Augustine.  You’ll never guess what we’re talking about today.  If you ask me, it might possibly be the greatest show we’ve ever done because we are so incredibly awesome at what we do, but we don’t want to brag about it.

    3. The pitfall of pride

      3. If her heart is closed, the last thing you can do is close your heart.
    4. A hero’s actions
      1. “I was wrong, and if you’ll allow me, I’d love to know if there’s anything I can do to repair the hurt I’ve caused you.”
      2. Return hurtful words or actions with kindness
      3. Pray instead of reacting negatively toward your wife

    “Christ not only preached humility to others, he lived it himself.  Though he was the Son of God, he was born in a cave.  He worked as a carpenter.  He composed no great work of art; built no towering edifice; assumed no great political office.  He died nailed to a cross, the fate of a common criminal.  He did all this willingly.  And yet, he became the central figure in world history.” Tim Lanigan http://www.foryourmarriage.org/humility-foundation-for-marital-happiness/
