Responsibilities of Wives and Husbands

Read the below bible verses to understand what the scriptures say about married life. In today’s world are we following the same? Verses 6 says “Thus Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord“. But today many wives call their husband by name or something else which do not have any respect. Today not only women, even men also are after fashion, ornaments and make their outward look beautiful. Verses 4 asking the wives to “let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God’s sight.” But who cares or listen to these words. Read the verses 1 to know the hidden quality of a woman. How many wives know this, and how many try to follow this,

Verses 7 is for husbands. Many husbands take advantage of the weakness of their wives. Many think wives have to do only what they like and if they say anything against, the quarrel start. Divorce has become a fashion these days. They are not even bothered about the future of their own children.

1 Peter 3:1-7

Wives, in the same way, accept the authority of your husbands, so that, even if some of them do not obey the word, they may be won over without a word by their wives’ conduct, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Do not adorn yourselves outwardly by braiding your hair, and by wearing gold ornaments or fine clothing; rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God’s sight. It was in this way long ago that the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves by accepting the authority of their husbands. Thus Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord. You have become her daughters as long as you do what is good and never let fears alarm you.

Husbands, in the same way, show consideration for your wives in your life together, paying honor to the woman as the weaker sex, since they too are also heirs of the gracious gift of life—so that nothing may hinder your prayers.

Let us  pray to God give us strength to follow the scriptures and lead a happy married life according to the will of God, May the Holy Spirit bless our family and help to live together till the end of life.
