Some things are caught, while some are taught.
Being a good wife isn’t automatic, so I’ll highlight few areas we need to work on.
Obviously there are more, but we’ll touch on these three which I believe are germane to any successful marriage.
1. Learn patience.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NET)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
This is a fruit of the spirit every woman should exhibit. You need a lot of patience in dealing with people, especially if you are in the ministry.
The bible also terms it longsuffering and like Pastor Dunamis usually say, it is indeed looooooooong.
2. Learn submission.
Ephesians 5:22 (KJV) Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Bible tells wives to submit to their own husbands and no one else.
Honor goes to your pastor, but submission goes to your husband. Get the difference.
Being a wife means you’ve agreed to the terms and conditions of marriage, submission inclusive.
3. Learn perception.
2 Kings 4:9 (ASV) And she said unto her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy man of God, that passeth by us continually.
A good wife must be able to sense danger miles away.
Likewise, she should be able to sense a good deal from afar as well.
You don’t just close your spirit to whatever your husband is doing and say to yourself “as long as he is providing”
You should be a part of the process. Help him see what he won’t see.
If you have a listening husband, your ability to perceive will help your husband and eventually the family.
May God help us to be award winning wives and home builders, amen.
