家庭和睦之道 – 夫愛妻從 The Path of Harmony in the Home – Loving Husband, Submissive Wife

女的要被愛, 男的要被尊重。弟兄們, 女人最需要人的愛; 姊妹們, 男人最需要人的尊重。作丈夫的要愛你的妻子, 作妻子要尊重你的丈夫。當妻子不被愛, 當丈夫不被尊重, 婚姻遲早都是出問題的, 作妻子好好尊重你的丈夫, 作丈夫好好愛惜你的妻子, 這樣的家庭才會和睦。

Here is an important marriage principle: A husband must love his wife, and a wife must respect her husband. Listen to Rev. Jeremiah Cheung as he explains the Biblical design for maintaining harmony within a marriage.

Read Today’s Scripture Passage
