His Joy and Crown

"A worthy wife is her husband's joy and crown; a shameful wife saps his strength." Proverbs 12:4

A worthy wife whom brings joy to her husband brings joy to Christ.

It is the investment in her relationship with that Christ that will overflow on her husband. 

Her desire to please the Lord will be shown through her love and respect for her husband.

She encourages him. She honors him with her words, actions and body language. 

She builds him up. She is gentle, kind, loving and finds joy in serving him. 

The shameful wife tears him down, disrespects him with her words and actions. Goes around town causing dissension among friends. She struggles in her relationship with Christ. Therefore, her relationship with her spouse brings frustration, unrealistic expectations, constant nagging due to her own unhappiness, discontentment, complaining, and insecurity. She bases all things on feelings, and reacts off her emotions, rather than God's truths. 

How would Jesus describe you as a wife today? He is the only one that will give you the honest truth, and we need the truth in order be set free from the path of destruction that will soon destroy our home and family. 

Jesus may my marriage and life be a true reflection of my relationship with You. Amen
