Great Questions You May Not Want to Ask, But Should!

In the past, I have shared some of the questions that I will ask our boys periodically during our family worship. Our boys have created some questions that they have asked us about themselves, which I may get them to compile for a future blog. I believe asking questions about what people closest to us see in our lives, and letting them reply freely without giving a great deal of feedback, is helpful. We can not and should not trust our own eyes to see blind spots and sin. A few weeks ago I sent our staff the link below, as just some questions to talk through with their wives. Because this particular blog is written for Pastors, I sifted through the questions and just wanted to suggest some for our men to ask their wives. On the next blog, I will have the top questions wives should ask their husbands. I hope you don’t just read these – but really take some time and ask these. Your marriage will be better for it!

-What can I do to make you feel loved and appreciated by me?

- What can I do to make you feel like I enjoy being with you more than anyone else?

- What are some things I can do to encourage you, spiritually?

- What can I do to help relieve the stress of life responsibilities?

- How can I best serve you in dealing with our children?

- What can I do to heighten your desire for physical intimacy?

- What can I do to make you feel our family is the priority over work?

- What can I do to help you grow in a love to serve our church?

- What kinds of moments when our family is together do you cherish the most?
