We at times forget how much our husbands need us. Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our children, our home, our blogs and life in general that we forget to get around to being his “help meet”.
We often have good intentions when we fill our days with this and that. We may even believe that if our calendars are filled with activities and our to-do lists are a mile long that we are being good wives.
However, it is just the opposite. A good wife is sensitive to her husbands needs above everyone else’s.She is concerned even to the point of clearing her schedule when he needs her, if possible. A wife who has a heart for her husband will purposely schedules time in her day for him.
She does not put her children’s desires, requests or agenda before her husbands. what your children want you to do shouldn’t come before what your husband needs you to do. Nor should where your children want to go come before where your husband needs for you to go. Fear not ladies — your children will know that they are loved and cared for even if they don’t receive 100% of your energy, time and attention. Nor will a godly husband put any selfish needs before his children.
When we place our husbands as a major priority in our lives we are teaching our children biblical family order. A good wife seeks to please her husband and adhere to her husbands wishes above all other earthly beings.(Ephesians 5:22-24)
One of the major drawbacks of neglecting to make our husbands a priority, is withdrawal. How many times have we all mis-prioritized and found that our husbands had withdrawn from us? They sought us but we were too busy. (Song of Solomon 5:2-6) They needed us, yet we were not there.
Because they are so strong, we forget how much our husbands need us. Because they rarely, if ever cry, we forget that they are vulnerable.
In an effort to be that “good thing’’ referred to in Proverbs 18:22; let us make a conscience effort to make our spouses a priority this week.
