How should a husband treat his wife? What does the Bible say? This morning I was reading I Samuel 12. There in the awesome Spirit-inspired parable which Prophet Nathan narrated to drive some sense to the adulterous King David, he compares a wife to ‘little ewe lamb’ who was ‘like a daughter to him’ (2 Sam. 12:2 NIV). I call this parable as “the mutton biriyani preparation story” in my messages! The phrase Nathan used in 2 Samuel 12:2 set me thinking. Dad’s need no inspiration to love their daughters. At least, I don’t. “Datasha, come here!” I say. “Come and sit on my lap!” I continue. This is a daily, delightful drill, for me. I keep thinking of silly jokes that are original that I narrate to make laugh till her stomach ached. I think of the gifts I leave on her bed which she will open her eyes to, at times. Here in 2 Samuel 12 through this Nathan parable, God was telling me that is how I should treat my wife as well: give an overdose of non-sexual touches (the place for sexual touch between husband and wife is certainly there as well, but ONLY AFTER an overdose of non-sexual touches), make her laugh, etc. etc. That was the route to a happy wife and consequently a happy life!!!!

Rev. Dr. Duke Jeyaraj is a trained Agricultural Engineer [B. Tech from SHIATS, Allahabad, India], who did not pursue a career in the line of his education but nevertheless enjoys growing cacti in the balcony of his flat, during his spare time! He could have been a cricket commentator but prefers to wrap Bible Truth around cricket magic moments and other interesting-to-Google Genners contemporary events. God’s call upon him made him utterly restless and he obeyed that call to by founding the Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission (G4 Mission) to finally find serenity after having served as a International Bank Customer Service Executive/Youth Pastor/Bible College Teacher/Missionary/Youth Mag Editor. G4 Mission is not a church but an inter-denominational ministry to present-day people, a ministry which Duke works full time for, as an itinerant presenter/preacher since 2008 putting to use the formal theological training he received from Southern Asia Bible College in Bangalore [M. Div & Doctor of Ministry]. Duke is called ‘dad’ by Dale (16) and Datasha (12) and ‘hubby’ by Evangelin and calls Hyderabad, India, his adopted home. Duke has preached by invitation beyond his national borders (we are talking about nations such as Bangladesh, Singapore, Germany, Nepal and the United Arab Emirates).
