Reasons I Love My Wife
1. She loves the Lord. This should never be taken for granted or overlooked. Too many times do we hear the heartbreaking stories where one or the other spouse is carnal, selfish, and doesn't give a whit about God and his ways. To have a spouse that loves the Lord is priceless.
Proverbs 18:22 [Whoso] findeth a wife findeth a good [thing], and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
Proverbs 31:30 Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
2. She loves me. To know that in a cold, hard, fast-moving, world there is someone out there who is thinking about me; my health, my thoughts, my spiritual life, etc., I can't count them all, is too good to miss. I am loved.
Song of Solomon 3:4 . . . I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go. . . "
Proverbs 31:11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
3. She loves the children. She shares her fear of the Lord with them as she guides them. I have worked away from home all of our marriage. She has, pretty much, had to singlehandedly direct all home matters. She will not have to stand guilty before the Lord for failing to teach, love, advise, correct, and warn her children. They love Mama for it. So do I.
Pro 31:26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness.
Pro 31:27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Pro 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband [also], and he praiseth her.
This is not the conclusion, instead just the beginning. I will continue to add as mediatate on the many reasons I love my darling wife, Darlene.
I encourage you brethren to ponder the reasons why you love your spouse and share them with us.
