Future husbands, here’s a question in respect to your leadership plan in the home.

Donald Whitney in his article, “Husbands, It’s Time to Start Leading Family Worship,” offers insight for a single woman interested in marriage.
Single women—resolve not to marry a man who will not pray with you and lead you in worship daily. For if he will not lead you spiritually in this way before you wed, it is very unlikely that he will do so after. If a man shows an interest in marrying you, talk to him about family worship before you commit your life and the lives of your future children to him.
Men, as you seek your future spouses, let’s determine today that you will lead them and your families in the Lord.
This is also a great reminder to all husbands (including me) to recall the importance of family worship and discipleship and repent for not leading as we ought.
What fears do you have in leading your wife and children in the Lord?
How have you grown spiritually to meet the challenge of family worship in the home?
