Safe and Secure
The movie Dave depicts a man who looks like the president of the United States and gets a request to stand in for him—first during official functions and later for an extended period after the president suffers a serious medical setback.
During one scene Dave is talking with the secret service agent who’s assigned to protect the “stand-in president.” The agent tells Dave that he (the agent) would take a bullet for the (real) president. As the stories plays out, Dave goes far beyond the call of duty as “president.” Then, at the end of the movie, the same agent says he’d take a bullet for Dave, too.
It was a powerful statement.
Love in the Face of Danger
As parents, many of us wouldn’t give a second thought to preventing our children from being harmed, even at the expense of our own lives. We’d become their secret service agent in a heartbeat.
But husbands, do you also feel that way about your wife? Do you love and cherish her at a level where you would do anything and everything in your power to prevent her suffering? This is not to put you on a guilt trip, just a question, man to man.
If you’re really brave, go ask your wife if she believes you’d take a bullet for her. (You can do it right now if you want; I’ll wait.)
Meanwhile, wives, how about it? Do you feel secure and protected? If you were in real danger, do you think your husband would take a bullet for you? Or would he hope he could run faster than you…?
