If a husband is to be the spiritual leader, his spirit must be sensitive to spiritual things. He must be sensitive to God’s Spirit prompting his spirit. Before he can minister effectively to his wife, he must also be sensitive to her spirit. A man should become so alert to the spirits of others that he can discern the emotional state of another person-sometimes even over the phone. And when that happens, it has enormously positive effects on his marital relationship and on relationships at the office or factory, in his church, and in his neighborhood.
