I would love to begin my exposition on the virtuous wife with a sincere message a guy sent to his lady, and it reads, “Let me know how it feels to be loved genuinely, how it feels to be cared for. This one thing I desire so much. Oh rest!” I talk of trust in a marriage relationship and/ or one leading to marriage
Bible teaches that husbands should love their wives just as Christ loves the church… (Ephesians 5:25). Love grows rapidly, beautifully, and bountifully in the field of TRUST. Trust for a person develops and grows over time as a result of the actions of the individual. If, with a single accord, we can say this is true, then we can say that love is love only in a person who has shown exhibits of trust. A husband who confidently trusts, relies on, and believes in his wife is all because her actions and behaviours create and enrich his trust in her. In such a home, love always blooms. Let me quickly point out that a virtuous wife is a trust-worthy person, and someone who is not secretive.
My dear ladies, if there is anything worth doing to gain the trust of our partners, then it is doing everything with the genuineness of heart, and concealing nothing from them. My husband deserves to feel loved, and so should yours – (Titus 2:4). Eventhough the Bible explicitly tells husbands to love their wives, I see that love to be a two way thing – a reciprocity, a hand-go hand-come affair, a give and take affair. It is like the see-saw, it takes two – the perfect two, two of opposite biological orientation, not two of opposite sexual preference.
I have always said that love is between a man and a woman who is receiving and reciprocating the love that the man shows. Like the Bible says ‘we love Him because He first loved us; here we responded to His love He has for us… (1 John 4:19) Halleluyah! For your man to trust in you, which will in turn cause him to love you greatly, be genuine and conceal nothing from him. For the two were naked and they were not ashamed (Gen 2:25). Let your actions, words, visions, thoughts, and everything be naked unto him.
Oh what beauty for a husband to lay his head upon his wife’s thighs or within her breasts, and his heart safely trusts her, that she will do him no evil but good all the days of his life.
Be the tent that can be trusted safely.
