I think it is of particular importance that we are constantly reminded of the importance of our jobs as wives because with so many duties pulling us in different directions, it is easy to place this relationship in an order of less importance; and yet, in the earthly realm, it is THE relationship that needs the most undergirding.
I believe our job as wives holds the thread of the home together; and not only that, but we our the loudest teachers, in our relationships to our husbands, that our children will hear. Our daughters are learning, from our behavior, how to treat their own husbands, and our sons are learning what kind of wife he should be looking for. We are not only building our own homes (or tearing them down), but are laying the foundation for the homes of our children!
I know, scary, isn’t it? I’ve been really convicted in some areas of my marriage, and so I thought a “live journal” of sorts would be a great way to teach myself!
So stay tuned for an intense look at Scripture regarding the role of a wife; prepare your hearts (and I’ll prepare mine) to rise up to the challenge before us. Whether you are struggling in your marriage, or have a wonderful one, your input will be greatly needed.
