You are watching: My husband is always correcting me


Proverbs 12:1 says, “To learn, you must love discipline; it is stupid to hate correction.” Indeed, if I want to grow for good as a person or as a couple with Natz, I need to find joy in discipline and rebuke from my partner and even from other people (that will be a topic for a separate blog post). This doesn’t mean that we just barrage the other person when we are annoyed and call out tactlessly his/her mistakes. We do it with love (just like Natz did with me, yehey!) and with words seasoned with grace. This we are able to do because Jesus did it for us first as He always lovingly and patiently corrects us when we go astray. And yes, we need to do it even if there’s a risk of the other person getting mad and defensive and being bummed out.

I am actually reminded of the passage in Ephesians 5:25-27: “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.”

Jesus died on the Cross for our salvation and also for our sanctification. He loves us so much that He changes us as the body of Christ from glory to glory to be presentable to God. He graciously and patiently works through our cracks and bloopers & picks us back up each time we fall. He cheers us on, longing to see us grow and mature and fulfill what He really intended us to be.

As we (especially men!) are called to love like Him, let us choose to lovingly correct our partners, helping them to be more like Christ. And let us (especially women!) be willing to accept if we are called out when we’re wrong. (No need to get mad that our partner is always correcting us–especially if it’s for us good!) We should be glad that someone loves us enough to accept us as we are, but also want us to change for the better–just like Jesus does.
