A Woman’s Roles

The Complete Husband
By Lou Priolo

In order for husbands to know their wives better, they need to know both about women in general and their woman (you) in particular.  You see, ladies, sometimes your very patterns of behavior totally confuse a man, especially when he thinks he has you figured out.

Like take an average trip to Wal*Mart.  I was sent to go pick up the yogurt for the week.  Knowing that Virtuous Blonde has mentioned in the past that she likes Key Lime Pie Yogurt, I pick up a bunch– thinking that I’ve gotten her favorite kind to eat.

After getting home and eating them for a few days, I begin to wonder why she’s eating the yogurt I picked out for myself, since there are still more Key Line Pie Yogurts in the refrigerator.  It turns out that she really doesn’t like those any more– but unlike my computer that notifies me that an update is available, she didn’t tell me.

Back to roles, since it’s important for Husbands and Wives to know their Biblical roles, Lou Priolo has a chart, which I will condense here:

Woman’s Role / Responsibility Scripture Reference
To be a suitable helper Genesis 2:18
To be submissive to her husband Ephesians 5:22
To glorify her husband 1 Corinthians 11:7-9
To reverence her husband Ephesians 5:33
To adorn herself with a meek and quiet spirit 1 Peter 3:3-4
To be pure and respectful in her conduct 1 Peter 3:2
To be wise and kind in word (and heart) Proverbs 31:26
An Older Woman is:

  • To be reverent in behavior
  • To not be enslaved to wine
  • To not be a malicious gossip
  • To teach what is good
  • To teach younger women
Titus 2:3-4
A younger woman is:

  • To be loving to her husband and children
  • To be discreet
  • To be pure
  • To be a keeper of the home
  • To be kind
  • To be subject to her husband
Titus 2:5

He then goes on to list a woman’s makeup:

Characterological Make-up Scripture Reference
She was made out of man 1 Corinthians 11:8
She was made for man 1 Corinthians 11:9
She was made after man 1 Timothy 2:13
She has a penchant to control her husband Genesis 3:16
She is more easily deceived 1 Timothy 2:14
She is to view herself as a bodily member and her husband as her head Ephesians 5:23

Whew, there’s a lot in the Scripture about you ladies!

I Wish She Came With an Owners Manual

Guys, let’s face it. There are some times that you wish she came with an owner’s manual. Something that would tell you all kinds of things about her:

  • Proper care and maintenance.
  • How to read her emotional meters.
  • Ways to make her run at optimal efficiency.
  • What to do when something goes wrong.

The truth is, she does come with a manual, it just needs to be extracted and written down:

The reason that you’ve never seen it is because it’s tucked away in her heart. Deep down in her heart is all the personal information you need to understand and nurture your wife according to the Bible.

Godly Husband: How Well Do You Know Your Wife?

olderhusbandandwifeheader.jpgGuys, how well do you know your wife?  To some degree, we have to know our wives– they’re probably the person that we’ve spent the most time with on a daily basis (I guess, though, most of that could be sleeping!).

But MInTheGap, how can I really know my wife (you’re asking)?  I mean, women are from Venus, and they think differently, emotionally or whatever.  Just when I think that I understand her, she changes.

Godly Husband: You Must Be Born Again

olderhusbandandwifeheader.jpgMen, the first step in having a strong and healthy marriage is to first make sure that you have been saved from your sins and that you are following Christ.

There are many things that will come up in your marriage: finances, children, decisions, etc.  You and your wife will have differences of opinion on these things, but if you have the same Lord and Savior, you will be able to rally around and look to Jesus for the answers to the tough ones.
