Analogy About A Couple

A husband and a wife are like:

Gas pedal and brake,

Only with the tank of gas from God’s provision of grace,

The couple can cooperate with each other to sojourn in the world.


A husband and a wife are like:

Feet and hands are connecting with the body,

Both are under the Head of God, who commands and controls each part,

The couple walk together by feet in the world as well as lift up needs by hands of prayer in the spirit.

Wherever the feet are directed by the Head to go,

The hands may be used by the Head to care, comfort and conquer.

When the feet go wrong, 

The hands openly surrender to the Head to pray,

Waiting for the Head to control the feet to come back to the right track.


This relationship is God’s design to join two talents in this temporary earthly world,

Until arriving at the eternal heavenly home, 

A husband and a wife are not married anymore,

Each is accountable to the Head for his and her reward of faith.


Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

  1. Hello Manling,

    Such a great message concerning the fusion of husband and wife as an overall team. It’s interesting, I was speaking with a really good friend this am about the merits of a cohesive marriage. So, this was an affirmation for the words that I had imparted to her in hopes of solidifying God’s word and helping with her current situation.

    Thank you for this beautiful poem.
    You have such a lovely style of writing.

    God Bless~
