Suppose you go to the refrigerator, and you are looking for something to eat late at night, let’s say after a picnic or barbecue. You are really hungry, but when you go to the kitchen and open the refrigerator, you see all the barbecued food wrapped in aluminum foil. You might become discouraged because you may or may not feel like opening all of the foil. But let’s say the food is wrapped in saran wrap and you can see the contents. Well, it is much easier to make a decision now because you can see what is inside the saran wrap. There are a lot of men who have their hearts wrapped up in aluminum foil and their wives do not know what is inside. What your wife wants from you is your heart wrapped in saran wrapping so that she can know the contents.Transparency is key in relationships. Click To Tweet

1 Samuel 16:7 (NKJV)
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Matthew 6:21-23 (NKJV)
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
James 5:16 (NKJV)
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
