An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who causes shame is like rottenness in his bones.
We should not be addressing our issues in front of others. When we disrespect our husband, we are breaking him down and making him weak. Our job as a wife is to be excellent. We should be treating our husband as lord of our home. This is such a humbling truth. This doesn’t take away from our importance as wife and mother. We are each equally important, but we are to be the crown of our husband. Our actions and words should make him feel like a king and activate a kingly authority that will allow him to function in his purpose according to the will of God. When he operates as king, he will treat us like a queen. When a situation of disagreement occurs, we should address him privately never to cause him shame by exposing him in front of others.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Our words are powerful weapons of honor or destruction. They produce the fruit of life and wellness or bring rotten fruit that will destroy and bring death. I am not yet perfect in this, but I have learned to be slow to speak and say things in love. I have also learned to be quick to repent and apologize in my wrong doings. There is power in humility!
Father, we thank You for our marriage. Forgive us for not always being a crown to our husband by acting in excellence. Help us be the very best we can be. Make us aware when we are placing shame instead of honor. Humble our hearts to allow our husbands be lord of our homes so they may be the kings that you have called them to be. Keep our tongues from speaking death to our marriage and give us words of life. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
