Love never fails! (I Corinthians 13:8).

There are no perfect husbands. Although those of us who have wives may desire to be the best husbands that we can possibly be, the fact that there are no perfect husbands should bring us great comfort. We are not perfect in our role; we will make many mistakes. Though we will falter and fail on many fronts with our wives, there is one simple ingredient in being a husband that will make it all work.

Love covers all mistakes (Proverbs 10:12).

Genuine love for our wives, lavished on them, will cover all of our mistakes. More than anything else our wives just need to be loved; they need to know that we love them. We’re not talking here about some mere sentiment, but a sincere, active love. After all, love is “the greatest” (I Corinthians 13:13), “a more excellent way” (I Corinthians 12:31).

Though we’ll will never be “perfect” husbands – without any mistakes – love will bring us up to a divine “perfection” that is unmatched, for love is “the bond of perfection” (Colossians 3:14).

If we want to be “perfect” husbands – let’s love our wives.

Husbands, love your wives (Ephesians 5:25; Colossians 3:19).
