….”but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.”
A companion and helper. That’s what we are to be!
If our husbands are the men they should be….my! They have a load to carry! And on top of all their responsibilities they are to love US “as Christ also love the church and gave himself for it”
And not to minimize the importance of OUR very important roles, but focusing a few lines on what we need to be for our husbands.
“The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.”
Do you find it a joy to serve your husband? Maybe have a nice meal prepared when he comes home from a long day? Does he come home to complaining and nagging or is he trusting in your smile and encouraging words?
Do you love and respect him enough that you can be as Sara…”Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord.”
The house may not be perfect…the kids may be dirty, but we can make his homecoming pleasant by welcoming him! Our home….our spirit should be such that he just can’t wait to walk through the door!
We need to strive to be that “help meet”/companion that he needs and desires. A lot of husbands certainly fall short of THEIR role in the home, and if your husband falls into this category, I believe the relationship can be made better by just making sure you’re falling into YOUR role. Make the first move: “Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives.”
Certainly, God knows best. He had OUR best in mind when He gave us the “order of the home” in His Holy Word.
The happiest of homes are those falling into His special “order”.
