We’ve looked at the qualities of a responsible husband. It is very necessary for us to look at the qualities of a responsible wife too because there are two sides to every coin, and in marriage, it takes two to tango.
To be a wife and mother is not a badge that is worn on every woman who is married and has children. You can be married and far from being a wife. You can bear children and you’re a far cry from who a mother is in its very essence.
I don’t think there is need for any special definition of these terms. We have a model in our very popular Proverbs 31 Woman
We are good to go on looking at her qualities, right?
The fear of the Lord rules her heart.
She reverences and honours her husband as instructed by God.
She is submissive to her husband as the church is to Christ.
She doesn’t leave the financial responsibility to her husband to shoulder. She does all she can to contribute to the family purse no matter the quantity.
She embraces the joys of motherhood and nurtures her children in the way of the Lord.
She’s the gatekeeper of her home and secures her family from any intruder.
She renders to her husband his due benevolence without hesitation
She’s quick to support her husband as he leads the family to the promised land.
She is not insensitive to the needs of her household.
She is not a lazy and idle woman. She doesn’t loaf around with her only work being a busybody.
She doesn’t use the weakness of her husband against him.
Remember the scripture that says he who finds a wife obtains favour. You have to carry the embodiments of a wife before you’re ‘wifed’
