Recently, i wrote a blog post about a capable wife and today i feel like writing about men too. The bible states in Genesis 2:24 that a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife and the two become one. What are the things that a good husband should do? How does a woman recognize an ideal husband when she sees him? Here are a few tips:
1) He loves.
A good husband should love his wife, or fiance. Love entails spending time with his woman, being friends with her, caring for her and treating her with respect and humility. (Colossians 3:9)
2) He provides.
This one holds true to a lot of women and is even ranked as a top quality by them. Women love men who provide for them and the kids. A woman would hardly respect a man who cannot provide. The man should be able to provide dwellings for the family, clothing and food too. The man should provide for the needs of his wife and children. In many families today, the wife might be working but she expects her husband to take care of her.
3) He is God-fearing.
An ideal husband should be God-fearing and submit to God just as his wife submits to him.
4) He is a priest.
He should be able to pray for his wife and kids and to lead them in religious worship at home.
5) He trusts.
An ideal husband should be faithful and trust his wife. He should trust his wife not to date any other man and he should delegate some tasks to her and trust her to them well.(Proverbs 31:11)
6) He defends and protects his family.
A good husband should be able to defend and protect his family and household. Whatever external force is directed to his family should hit him first.
7) He is a companion.
He should enjoy being together with his wife and family. He should revel in the presence of his household.
8) He is a disciplinarian.
He should discipline and guide the kids when they do something wrong and call the wife to order when she goes astray.
9) He is a counselor.
He gives counsel and advice to his wife. He provides direction and guidance to the whole family.
