3 Bible Tips: Being a Better Wife
1. Seek to respect your husband and therefore honor God.
"Let the wife see that she respects her husband" (Ephesians 5:33b).
2. Be submissive. (Of course, everyone has to learn this, not just wives, as Paul shows in Ephesians 5:21. And it doesn't mean we should submit to anything against God's law, as Acts 5:29 shows.)
"Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear" (1 Peter 3:1-2).
3. Be a virtuous wife your husband can have full confidence in.
"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life" (Proverbs 31:10-12, New International Version).
