Yesterday, we talked about some prerequisites to becoming a good husband.
Most of the time, we erroneously believe that being a good husband or wife just comes automatically.
How wrong we are! Every troubled marriage is because the couples failed to make adjustments at becoming a good husband or wife.
Every good wife or husband had to pass through the process of learning, unlearning and relearning.
Until you have learnt these basic prerequisites of becoming a good wife, you don’t have any business being married.
If you are married however, it is not too late to learn.
Learn, lest you make a mess of what marriage is meant to be and raise future generation wives to be bad wives also.
You see why this is very important? The next generation of wives and mothers are at risk of being half baked or not even baked at all.
Here are 5 prerequisites of being a good wife.
- The ability to Submit to your own Husband:
Anybody called ‘wife’ has signed for a lifetime of being ‘submissive to your own husband’. Any woman who finds it difficult to submit is not fit to marry.
- The ability to perceive:
A good wife must be able to perceive in order to be a goodly and godly wife.
It is necessary for her to develop her gift of perception in order to be a proper help meet.
- The ability to be patient:
This is one of the prerequisite of being a godly wife.
She must be patient with her husband and patient with what God is doing with her husband.
- The ability to be humble:
Being submissive is a call unto humility. You must be humble and stay humble.
- The ability to listen and obey:
‘Whatever he asks you to do, do and whatever he asks you not to do, don’t do.’ This should be the watch word of every wife.
Obedience, obedience and obedience is what equates to being a good wife.
Do these 5 things and you will be on your way to being a good wife.
God bless our marriages.
