(Adapted from I Corinthian 13: 1-8;13)
Though a wife speaks well to people but is not sweet to her husband, she is like a stained chopping board or a lukewarm coffee.
And though she is an excellent cook and keeps the house in order, but is not affectionate to her husband, she is like an expensive vase which has no purpose but for display.
And though she opens up their house to visitors, gives generously and sacrifices for the sake of others, but is not sensitive to the feelings of her husband, she is like a leaking faucet or a sagging clothesline.
A loving wife is patient. She understands and accepts the weaknesses of her husband.
A loving wife treats her husband with respect; speaks well of him and does not tell of his weaknesses, or embarrasses him in front of other people.
A loving wife does not think evil of her husband.
A loving wife always finds ways to make her husband happy.
A loving wife is not proud of her achievements but looks at them as fruits of her partnership with her husband.
A loving wife is not easily angered,
She gives timely rebuke for her husband’s weaknesses and mistakes because she knows that she is the right person who can correct her husband.
She has great confidence on her husband’s ability. She is her number one admirer, a great supporter who applauds his every achievement.
The true love of a godly wife to her husband never fails, because the best gift a husband can receive is his wife’s love.
