Ephesians 5:25 NKJV says, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself for her.” Matthew 19:5-6 says, “..For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?[c] 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh…”
We are joined with our wife at marriage. She becomes part of us. When you have children their blood is formed through your union with your wife. She is your best friend, your encourager, an ear to listen to when you’re struggling or when you’re overflowing with joy, and she is there to tell you to pull up your big boy pants when the time is needed.
We as husbands are called to do the same thing. We need to love our wife and lift her up in Christ just as she does for us. Encourage her in her career, her role as a wife, her role as a friend, and her role as a mother. As men love your wife so your little boy knows how to treat women. Men be an example of who you want your daughters to marry and how they are to be treated by the opposite sex.
