Cooking For Your Wife and Children
Cooking for your wife or the family (you, your wife and children) occasionally, is Christlike. Jesus prepared meal for His Bride.
"When they got there, they found breakfast waiting for them—fish cooking over a charcoal fire, and some bread. “Bring some of the fish you’ve just caught,” Jesus said. So Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore... Now come and have some breakfast!” Jesus said... Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish." John 21:9-13 (NLT)
It is not a taboo for you to occasionally prepare meal for your family as a man.
Jesus prepared meal for His Bride (His disciples) in John 21:9-13 and even served them. Some Christian men read this passage and shout, humility! But they cannot do what Jesus did for their wife or family because they're firmly holding on to tradition, believing it's an abomination for a man to cook for his wife or his family (wife and children).
Christian husbands, ditch tradition and emulate Jesus Christ who is your head. Jesus did not just prepare meal for His disciples, He made a tasty meal, so He knew how to cook.
I can't count the number of times my husband has said to me, "Go and rest, I'll do the cooking today." And he makes very tasty meals (no exaggeration).
Cooking for your wife or the family once in a while is a display of humility.
The more humble you are as a husband, the more easier you make it for your wife to submit to you joyfully.
We (the Bride of Christ) submit to Jesus joyfully, not only because He loves us, but His humility is also a contributing factor.
Why? Love is not proud (1 Corinthians 13:4). Love is humble. If you want to love your wife as Christ loves the Church and do so successfully, you must be humble. If you're proud, you'll fail woefully at it.
Learn to make some meals (if you don't know how to cook) and cook for your wife and family occasionally. It is Christlike.
