How can you be a wife with a mission?
Teachers use grading rubrics. It helps them grade consistently across a classroom of children.
It also helps students to know what to focus on; what to improve; what to give their time to studying.
As a wife, trying to live out the great mission of our role, we need to consider God's rubric for women.
Marriages flounder when spouses misunderstand their roles.
Here are some questions for wives to ask as we read the Word of God:
You and I can be wives with a mission. A mission to lavishly fulfill our role in life. A mission to complete our husband, not compete with him. A mission to love and respect our husband, to bring him good all the days of our lives, and to pray for him daily as he fulfills his own role in life.
Live with a mission!
