Respect and Revere Your Husband
A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious
woman are alike.
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.
