Marriage and Family Series – Duties of the Wife

I am going to change the format for presenting the duties of each spouse to the other and the different types of spouses. Please forgive any confusion this may cause.

 

This week we look at the duties of the wife toward the husband.

Duties of the Wife

 

Reverence > Ephesians 5:33

33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects [reverence KJV] her husband.

 

Be Trustworthy > Proverbs 31:11,12

11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;

So he will have no lack of gain.

12 She does him good and not evil

All the days of her life.

 

Love > Titus 2:4

4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,

 

Submit > 1 Peter 3:5,6

5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

 

Be Satisfying to Her Husband > Proverbs 5:18,19

18 Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice with the wife of your youth. 19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; And always be enraptured with her love.

 

Be Chaste > Titus 2:5

5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

 

Love Her Children > Titus 2:4

4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,

 

Be Homemakers > Titus 2:5

5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

 

Next week we examine the duties of the husband toward the wife.
