The idea of being a biblical wife sounds great if you’re engaged or maybe newly married. But if you’ve been married for some time now, you’re might not be too excited about this God-honoring pursuit.
Most women I meet have no problem becoming a biblical mom, but to pursue what the Bible says about wifehood is not something we naturally gravitate to. After all, living with a sin-filled man can be quite difficult!
Yet, this position is vital to a thriving marriage and family. If the role of a wife gets neglected, it won’t take long for the family to crumble.
It saddens me to see so much emphasis placed on the various roles a woman hold’s, i.e. mom, business owner, student, woman in ministry and the likes. You’ll find Mops groups for the young mamas, conferences for Christian moms, women entrepreneurs, women in ministry, homemakers, and women in general, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a conference, workshop, seminar, or small group that encourages and equips women to grow in their role as a biblical wife.
God’s plan for wifehood is good and beautiful and we need to learn and embrace His plan.
For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures. Romans 15:4
