Love your Husband and Family

Respect and Revere Your Husband

A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.
Proverb 27:15

Farmer Jake had a nagging wife who made his life miserable. The only real peace that he got was when he was out in the field plowing.

One day when he was out in the field, Jake's wife brought his lunch to him. Then she stayed while he quietly ate and berated him with a constant stream of nagging and complaining. Suddenly, Jake's old mule kicked up his back legs, striking the wife in the head, and killing her instantly.

At the wake, Jake's minister noticed that when the women offered their sympathy to Jake he would nod his head up and down. But when the men came up and spoke quietly to him, he would shake his head from side to side.

When the wake was over and all the mourners had left, the minister approached Jake and asked, "Why was it that you nodded your head up and down to all the women and shook your head from side to side to all the men?"

Well, Jake replied, "The women all said how nice she looked, and her dress was so pretty," so I agreed by nodding my head up and down. The men all asked, "Is that mule for sale!?"

We laugh at jokes about nagging wives (like the one above). Sadly, nagging and wife almost appear synonymous now days. But to God (and our husbands) nagging is no laughing matter. Ladies, as Ephesians 5:33 states, let's respect and reverence our husbands (notice him, regard him, honor him, prefer him, venerate and esteem him; defer to him, praise him, love and admire him exceedingly - Amplified Bible).

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
Proverbs 31:10-12
