What is the one question Ephesians 5:22-33 demands I ask my spouse?

 This past Sunday, I preached about God’s Design for Marriage from Ephesians 5:22-33.  At the end, I had a question for each husband and wife to ask the other as a result of what the text says about marriage.  I would argue that because these commands are so clear to the husband and wife, they demand a consistent effort to examine your marriage in light of them.  Here are the 2 questions I challenged our people to discuss with their spouse this week and so I thought I would take the opportunity to challenge you in the same way.  The questions Ephesians 5 demands we ask our spouse regularly are:

Wife to the husband: “What are some things I do (can do) that encourage you, make you feel respected and honored as the head of our family?”

Husband to the wife: “What are some things I do (can do) that make you feel loved, cherished, and spiritually nourished by me?”

I have already heard from some of our folks that these questions have provoked some very fruitful and needed conversations between them.  I pray the Lord uses whatever discussion comes between you and your spouse as a result of these very biblical questions we should desire to ask regularly.  For a broader context from where these questions came, the sermon I preached should be on line later this week.
