You have to know how to manage another life. It is a huge responsibility that requires great skills and wisdom.
In actual fact, it requires the help of God. We have to constantly ask for the help of God, to always do the needful.
Also of importance is the fact that becoming a good husband is a process. It requires our effort, willingness, time and determination.
Some men can give all their effort, time and energy to a project or to becoming a successful business mogul, but gives little or no attention to their marriage.
They take their marriage with levity and treat their wives like they don’t really matter.
Whereas if they treat the issue of getting it right on the home front as uttermost importance, they become successful easily.
The wife steps into the fullness of her role and assignment of being an help meet indeed.
She uses all the power she has into making sure her man succeeds.
Here are some other tips to consider in becoming a good husband.
6. You must be a great teacher
The ability to teach and impact knowledge is very important.
Eph 5:26 -29 KJV
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: So as a husband your ability to teach your wife and help her in becoming who she ought to be is very important.
