Parents and Wives

parents and wives

There are those children who have the ability to bring their parents to ruin and there are those wives whose nagging is like water going drip-drip-drip-drip … so even if a man received an incredible inheritance from his parents, it is only the Lord that can give him a sensible wife.

Psalm 128:3 – “A fruitful vine” is one that produces something good, and is a good description of a good wife. She is considered the “very heart of your house.” It is in husbands best interest to “to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself” (Ephesians 5:28).  “An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who causes shame is like rottenness in his bones” (Proverbs 12:4). “Olive trees” produce very useful oil, capable of many applications, so  children add many moments of pleasure and happiness. A man whose wife and children sit around his table cannot be more satisfied.
