You Can Tell A Lot About A Man

In today’s world the most basic observations will tell us a great deal about the people around us. For starters you can see the way they treat others. Most importantly, you can gain great insight by watching how a man treats his wife. Is he attentive or dismissive? Is he regarding her as an equal or just someone who does the laundry and has his children? The list could go on and on. What you see in public is not always what goes on in the privacy of the home. A well loved woman is a joy to behold and to be with. Her countenance will give you some insight to what goes on at home.

I heard a song today and thought the words were so good. The first verse gets repeated between each of the other verses and then again at the end. ‘Nuff said.

You can tell a lot about a man
by the way he treats his wife
Does he make his home a haven
Or is it filled with fear and strife?
Way down deep inside of her
Is the story of his life
You can tell a lot about a man
By the way he treats his wife

Does he give an ear to listen?
Does he try to see her side?
Will he give her strong security
And arms where she can cry?
You see, the times we feel like giving up
Or holding onto pride
Are the times that God is calling us
To sacrifice our lives.

You can tell a lot about a man
by the way he treats his wife
Does he make his home a haven
Or is it filled with fear and strife?
Way down deep inside of her
Is the story of his life
You can tell a lot about a man
By the way he treats his wife

Is he diligently in fathering
Or does she feel alone?
Does he know that making love to her
Starts before he’s even home?
So he calls and speaks his love to her
And listens on the phone
Cause the power of his commitment
Is found in God alone

You can tell a lot about a man
by the way he treats his wife
Does he make his home a haven
Or is it filled with fear and strife?
Way down deep inside of her
Is the story of his life
You can tell a lot about a man
By the way he treats his wife
