Be Quiet Already

A man from Berlin, Germany, took an unusual approach in trying to bring peace to his marriage. CNN reported that the man was using an old air raid siren to stun his wife into submission.

“My wife never lets me get a word in edgeways,” the man identified as Vladimir R. told the police. "So I crank up the siren and let it rip for a few minutes. It works every time. Afterwards, it's real quiet again." The 73-yearold man's 220-volt rooftop siren was confiscated by police after neighbors filed complaints.

Few of us have access to a 220-volt rooftop siren, but we tend to find other ways to shut each other down. Some shout. Others use the "silent treatment." Regardless of the method, the end result is the same. We create walls to shut each other out and to protect ourselves from what we see as attacks.

But a man who loves his wife like Christ loves the church will want to hear what she has to say. And a wife who is respectful and supportive of her husband will speak words that her husband longs to hear.

Ephesians 5:21

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

I love you all,
