Before we dive into some of my faves, I just want to assure you that I in no way live by these perfectly, but I do strive to! In fact, in all honestly, I’ve been seriously lacking in this area, and this is a great reminder. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, so I decided to keep with the theme of love/marriage/relationships. These scriptures are my personal favorites when it comes to the world of marriage! If you have some favorites that didn’t make my list, please leave them in the comments below, I’d love to check them out!
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.
Okay my fellow wives, if you’re not feeling special as HECK right now, well, you totally SHOULD!
But enough about how the husbands ought to be. Time to take a look at my favorite scriptures pertaining to how we conduct ourselves as wives. It truly is how I strive to be, but of course am not there yet.
Food for Thought
As women, we rely on our friends for venting purposes. Anytime conflict arises, said friends probably go on about ‘you deserve better’ and are always quick to point the finger. But how often do we stop and look in the mirror? I know I don’t. I’d much rather dismiss the issue altogether. But what good does that do?
You see, when you work on yourself, you’ll start to see the circumstances around you improve. You can’t expect your spouse, or anyone else, to change when you yourself remain stagnant. Work on yourself and strive to be the best version of yourself, and I promise those around you will do the same.
