Colossians 3:19 ” Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.”

I cringe inwardly every time I over hear a married couple bickering in public.  It hurts my heart to hear a husband belittle his wife, and she return it with a volley of  sharp and biting comments.  The type of love in this verse that the Apostle Paul is talking about is a love rooted in the mind and will of the person, and means to value, esteem, prize…to treat as precious.  The fastest way to embitter a person is to make them feel devalued, worthless, and unappreciated.
