I’ve got to hand it to all the mothers and wives who get up faithfully every time the doors of the church are open on Sunday morning and get themselves and their children ready for church, knowing that their husbands refuse to go. God Bless you!
I’ve seen my mom do it so many times. She told my dad that he should go and he would just sit there and watch TV. She’d say come on, Timothy, let’s go to church, daddy is staying home again.
I never understood why he stayed home.
He said he loved God. He said he loved Jesus. He wanted me to go, but he refused to go. It didn’t make much sense to me why he said those things but still wouldn’t go to church.
He, like most men who don’t go to church with their wives, would go anywhere else but when it came to church, he balked like a mule who refused to plow the garden.
It’s sad to see men like this set a sorry example for their sons and daughters. I know. I used it for an excuse many times.
“Mom, daddy is not going to church, and neither am I. If he doesn’t have to go to church, neither do I.” Dad would just sit there and smile. Mom didn’t have a leg to stand on.
Many times I would hear mom say to me when we went to church together that she wished that Dad would go and be with her like other solid, good and faithful men who would sit with their wives. These were men who were respected as pillars in the church, men whom you could count on at a minutes notice.
Mom and I would be embarrassed when people would come up to her and say, “Where’s John?” or to me, “Where’s your dad?” We would just say he didn’t want to come.
Yeah, I feel for you wives who have husbands that don’t want to come to church with you because of whatever reason they seem to make up that makes good logic to them.
Now, I’m not talking about husbands, who go to another church, I’m just talking about those who stay at home and either sleep or do nothing. I don’t understand them.
Later my dad started being faithful and went with my mom. We loved that.
Dads you’re setting a regretful example to your children when you don’t attend with them. You think you have problems now? You just wait until they get older, they’ll do the same thing to their wives.
God Bless you lonely women.
That’s what I think about it.
