1 Corinthians 12:1-11
Sue’s birthday is next week; and while browsing on-line for creative gift ideas I stumbled across a Reader’s Digest article entitled “What Not to Buy Your Wife.”
Certain that this could not be coincidental, I thought it might be in my best interest to stop what I was doing and read it.
Here are a few of the author’s suggestions on what not to buy your wife:
- Don’t buy anything that plugs in. Anything that requires electricity is seen as impersonal and housework related.
- Don’t buy clothing that involves sizes. The chances are one in seven thousand that you will get her size right, and your wife will be offended the other 6999 times.
- Don’t buy anything that involves weight loss or self-improvement. A six-month membership to a gym, for example, could easily be misconstrued as a suggestion that’s she’s out of shape.
- Don’t buy jewelry. The jewelry your wife wants, you can’t afford. And the jewelry you can afford, she doesn’t want.
