This is a list that I have in my Home Making Binder. I have it in a section titled Rules. I refer back to it often and use it as a guide for my actions. Reading it reminds me to take the focus off of myself and to keep it on God. It reminds me of His standard for Christian wives and mothers.
Sometimes as wives we can get caught up in what our husbands may or may not not doing for us, that we loose sight of what God has called us to do. Our obedience to God’s commands are not be contingent upon whether or not our husbands are what we want them to be. We are called to obey God not because everything is perfect, but because we love Him and He is perfect.
Am I reverencing my husband? – Ephesians 5:33
Am I being a keeper of my home? – Titus 2:5
Am I training my children according to God’s word? – Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 6:7
Am I dressing modestly? – 1 Timothy 2:9
Am I making a conscience effort not to nag my husband? – Proverbs 21:19
Am I choosing not to withhold sex from my husband? – 1 Corinthians 7:3-5
Do yo find it hard to obey God’s command to reverence your husband when he has wronged or offended you?
