LOVE YOUR HUSBAND
The Bible is very clear as to how a wife should act to enjoy a happy fruitful marriage.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.
Wow! This surely can’t apply to a liberated society in the 21st century.
Wrong! It still applies and is the first requirement for harmony together.
Submission is not a rank or position, but a spirit of meekness. God has given the man the responsibility of spiritual authority.
However in Christ we lovingly submit to one another.
ALLOW HIM TO BE THE SPIRITUAL HEAD OF THE FAMILY
Wives must make a choice to help their man exercise spiritual maturity and authority. Sadly when men ignore their spiritual responsibilities – wives pick up the mantle out of necessity.
Being the spiritual head does not mean he must control everything.
It means he must be an example of godliness to his family.
Husbands and wives are partners and must determine who is more gifted to fulfil each role of family life.
And stop telling him he is not very spiritual.
ALLOW HIM TO BE THE SAVIOUR OF THE FAMILY
Honour your man and make him feel like a hero. Men need to be told they are amazing. How the wife speaks to her husband has much to do with how the husband faces up to life.
Wives who demean their husbands are destroying their future.
If the wife has to work – don’t demean him as useless. Kids learn marriage from their parents.
SEEK TO PLEASE YOUR HUSBAND
Find ways to please your man.
Don’t use sex as a reward or abstinence as a punishment.
Don’t hide behind the children.
Don’t get a job or a ministry that keeps you away from your family time.
Don’t find your self esteem outside of your marriage and family.
Find ways to make your marriage pleasurable. Do the little things that turn your house into a home.
Keep a right attitude and be positive about your future together.
BEHIND EVERY GOOD MAN
IS A GOOD WOMAN
