The Man is the Frame and the Woman is the Picture

In Ballroom Dance there is a phrase, “The man is the frame, and the woman is the picture. “ The leader’s goal during the dance is to show her off, not to dominate over her on the dance floor!  In the lead and follow of the ballroom dance, the gentleman will lead in such a way that makes the girl look wonderful, not by domineering, but by cherishing his dance partner.  

The purpose of the frame:

  • Enhance the picture
  • Supports and holds the picture
  • Not to be a distraction from the picture.  If the eye goes to the frame it is the wrong frame.  They eye should go to the picture

Is this the picture of your marriage?  Husbands are you treating your wife as your queen?  Do you compliment her? Adore her? Make her look good?  Do you show her off?

God’s Word-Ephesians 5:25-28(The Message)  Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage.
