I still struggle with being a “proverbs 31” kind of wife. If you have never read Proverbs 31 I encourage you to take a look.
I read the Proverbs 31 Ministries Daily Devotion, well not daily but I do follow it. You can too, just click on the button on the side bar to access this wonderful daily devotional website.
The one I read Tuesday morning was really powerful.
I have always been an advocate of women being submissive to their husbands. But this particular post by Renee Swope really nailed it. The things that she thought were helping were actually making things worse.
I still believe that you should “let” your husband lead. LET him. Not like, “Fine then, you’ll see I was right all along and then I’ll tell you I told you so.” kind of “let” him. But honestly, trust your husband to make those decisions for your family.
If he makes a mistake, he will realize it soon enough, without you nagging him about it. Support him, pick him back up if he makes a mistake and love him. That’s what we who are wives are called to do.
