A Tale Of Two Vessels

You don't treat a glass vessel, same way you will treat a plastic vessel
Words In Season:

You don't treat a glass cup, same way you treat a plastic cup, not only because of the value of the glass cup, but because of it's delicate nature.
         A Kingdom patriot

Bearing:

"Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel,......."  I Peter 3:7


Bottomline:
If she is reading this, then she will understand by sudden radical change in the way I approach her now. And if she doesn't, she may never understand why the sudden, more gentler, more careful change. Because I did not tell her why. I mean my partner.
It was after I got to understand thoroughly from the scriptures above that you don't treat fragile and delicate vases the same way treat rugged and tough textured ones. Not only because of their higher value, but because of their delicate nature.
Both high and low, they are the same - weaker vessels
For instance, an apple and an egg in Nigeria are nearly the same in naira value. But if an apple drop from your hand to the floor in the kitchen, you can pick it up again, wash it thoroughly and still give it a bite.
But if an egg falls to the floor the same way, you could as well remove the fry pan from the gas cooker and go and drink your tea alone with your bread!
Be they daughters of the highly placed or the down trodden, they are the same in texture
So are women according to scriptures and in reality so they are - weaker vessels. So caution is the word on how you treat and handle them. You do it carefully not carelessly. Just think of the way you approach a glass ware to that of an aluminium ware. Then you got my point.
In summary the other name for any weaker and delicate vessel is "treat with caution and care" In how you talk to them and how you treat them "caution and care"
Some of them may put up a bold and masculine facade. Don't get fooled by such.
That does not change their nature. Just like a tough looking wine glass does not alter its delicate and fragile nature compared to an aluminium wine cup.
Have you made a mistake regarding this  reality with your wife, out of ignorance of this Biblical truth? Many of us have.
But there is always room for improvement even for those that are perfect. You can still make up with your spouse. It is never too late to repent. You don't even need to tell her of your decision and change. Let her see things for herself in your new attitude.
And if you are still wondering how can these things be, I believe it is time to start a relationship with The One with Whom all things are possible. Jesus is His name. The Same That turned water into wine in Cana of Galilee can can still bring colour and taste into your marriage. If and if only you will surrender your life to Him today.
