One of the greatest gifts a man can give his wife is his knowledge of self.
Women in general experience life from on the inside. Men in general experience life from on the outside. Men try to understand how the world works and women try to understand how people work. When a man decides to meet his wife on her own terms, he opens himself up to what she is naturally good at, understanding who he is on the inside and how that shapes his outer world. Men identify more with dreams and goals, everyday problems and solutions, and lack the means to think or talk about the person that lives inside, except in terms of life principles and how that shapes their character. Women on the other hand naturally think in terms of the person that resides exclusively, internally. With right motives and a loving heart, a woman uses this ability to both understand and coach her husband into becoming the best he can possibly be.
Opening up in this way is initially a most unsettling experience for most men, but the wisdom and personal strength a man gains in return far outweighs the perceived risk. Entrusting himself to her intimate care allows both him and his wife to know him better. Intimacy increases, the love between them deepens, and trust abounds. He will begin to use this new knowledge to confide in her, learn from her, and teach her about himself. She will begin to learn about the man he is trying to become, about the man she wants to look up to, and about the man that craves her respect. Her love for him will grow strong and so will their marriage, continually.
