Mary Brunson was driving the new family SUV and inadvertently made a wrong turn. To make matters worse, she then sideswiped another oncoming vehicle.
In tears she began fumbling through the glove compartment in an effort to locate the appropriate insurance papers. When she finally found the documents, she also discovered a small note attached in her husband’s handwriting. It read simply:
“Dear Mary, when you read these papers, remember that it’s you I love and not the car.”
Gentlemen, that’s consideration! The Bible says, “Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers” (1 Pet. 3:7 NIV). Think about it.
