You are now married and as a husband, building a decent home for your family is your priority. Have you checked what God wants from a godly husband in the Scripture? Let us start!
- Ephesians 5:23: For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
It only means you are the head of the family and you should bring your wife to God. However, this does not follow that you can run an authoritarian rule in the household.
- Genesis 2:24: That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Marriage means the solidarity of two souls in the eyes of the Lord. Keep in mind that you may rely with your parents once in a while but the marital affairs should be only handled by you and your wife alone.
- Psalms 128:3: Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.
