I’m so thankful I have the Bible to help me be a better wife. I believe in the heart of every married woman, is the desire to love her husband and be that wife God intended her to become. God’s instructions for marriage are found in the Bible and they include a promise. When you follow God’s instructions, you are blessed. As wives, we are on a journey of learning how to be our husband’s help mate, to bring him good and not harm all the days of his life! Here are 5 quick Bible verses to encourage you in your marriage journey.
1. Psalm 128: 3
Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
2. Proverbs 12: 4
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
For her worth is far above jewels.
And he will have no lack of gain.
All the days of her life.
And works with her hands in delight.
She brings her food from afar.
And gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens.
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
And makes her arms strong.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
And her hands grasp the spindle.
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
When he sits among the elders of the land.
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
And she smiles at the future.
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
But you excel them all.”
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
And let her works praise her in the gates.
