I'm so thankful I have the Bible to help me be a better wife. I believe in the heart of every married woman, is the desire to love her husband and be that wife God intended her to become. God's instructions for marriage are found in the Bible and they include a promise. When you follow God's instructions, you are blessed. As wives, we are on a journey of learning how to be our husband's help mate, to bring him good and not harm all the days of his life! Here are 5 quick Bible verses to encourage you in your marriage journey.
1. Psalm 128: 3
Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
2. Proverbs 12: 4
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
3. Proverbs 14: 1
Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
4. Ephesians 5: 22-23
Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.
5. Proverbs 31: 10-31
An excellent wife, who can find?
For her worth is far above jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She looks for wool and flax
And works with her hands in delight.
She is like merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar.
She rises also while it is still night
And gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.
She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night.
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle.
She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She makes coverings for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also,
and he praises her, saying:
“Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates.
Blessings and Shalom,
