Nurturing a Strong Relationship with Your Husband – Part 3

Nurturing-Full-Spread-2

Here is the final segment in the three-part series on nurturing your relationship with your husband. See how to implement strategies used by the Proverbs 31 woman and become the priceless partner your husband needs.

She is his companion

A strong woman is eager to be her husband’s companion. In essence, she studies her husband to understand what makes him who he is so that she can come up alongside of him and become a helper comparable to him. She enjoys knowing him and, in turn, enjoys spending time with him. Ephesians 5:33 says: “…and the wife see that she reverence her husband” (KJV). When a woman takes time to understand her husband and takes an interest in his interests, he feels loved and (more importantly) respected, just as the Word exhorts us to do.

I have so enjoyed studying my husband, Jack, and have benefited through sharpening my understanding in biology, engineering, politics, business, history, and so many other areas. While I don’t have the same level of understanding that he does, my interest has encouraged and stimulated him onto greater things, spurring a stronger relationship between us in the process.

Above all, she is her husband’s greatest asset

As a godly wife, you are better than money or riches to your husband. In fact, according to the Bible, as a godly wife of character, humility, wisdom, and faithfulness, you will cause your husband to “…have no lack of gain” (Proverbs 31:11 NKJV). Why? Because as a “virtuous wife” your “worth is far above rubies” (Proverbs 31:10 NKJV).

Be encouraged! By nurturing your relationship with your husband, you will bless your entire household: “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her” (Proverbs 31:28 NKJV).
