It is wisdom to be aware of and make necessary corrections wherever and whenever the scriptures point our attention to whatever it is that might make us fools.
Based on the admonitions of Apostle Paul in Eph. 5:15, we will briefly consider five things that constitute folly in Men/Husbands.
1. Finding Pleasure In Strife
Proverbs 20:3 (KJV) – It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.
When a man finds pleasure in remaining in strife with his wife, such man needs to understand that he is treading on the path of fools.
As husbands, we must do everything to avoid been in strife with our wives as this is capable of hindering the prayers of both parties.
2. Being Void of Relevant Knowledge Concerning Marriage
Proverbs 10:14 (KJV)- Wise men lay-up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
When a man does not consciously and constantly increase his knowledge stores by reading or sitting under teachers that can impart knowledge into him which can be applied in the right administration of his home, then such husband is not wise.
3. Joking With Habitual Sins
Proverbs 14:9 (KJV) Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favor.
It is an unwise choice for a man to be comfortable with habitual sins, regardless of how small or insignificant it might seem.
The moment the scriptures point it out as a sin, a wise husband should not be comfortable with such.
4. Remaining Or Keeping Company With The Unrighteous
When the company we keep as men/husbands do not spur us to be righteous, then we are travelling on fools express.
It is wise to back track and check your company as a man if you are the type that keep company of friends. Then be careful enough to examine what your company is known for.
If they are known for habitual unrighteousness, you have to stay away from such company.
5. Not Having Authority Figures
Proverbs 26:12 (KJV) Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him.
The state of been self-sufficient in what one knows as a husband all the time puts one even below the level of a fool. As husbands, it is safer and wiser to place oneself under the ministry of people who have gone ahead of him, particularly in marriage, especially when ones marriage seems to be going through murky or stormy waters.
The wisdom of those ahead in form of counsel or prayers might just be all that is needed to get out of such period.
I pray for you, you are filled with wisdom to lead your homes in Jesus name.
