Ephesians 5:25 - Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.
While it may seem like there is a holiday for everything these days, this Sunday is one we don't mind celebrating. Sunday is "Wife Appreciation Day", and we honor the special women in our lives we are blessed enough to call wives. We love them for all they do, from providing a place to come home to, to being a messenger of God’s unconditional love for us.
Wife Appreciation Day is a reminder of the covenant before God that unifies two into one spirit. She is a half of one whole, created by Him to become a servant in Christ. A wife becomes a part of His mission for one team in marriage and with nurturing in faith, the union bears fruit. With a lot of work and His guidance, the two are strengthened.
Wives are delicate, but strong.
Wives are loving, but firm.
Wives are selfless, but valued.
Wives are our best friends sent by God.
There were times when I would reflect in prayer and ask, “God, I pray you lead me to the person you have created just for me,” because as God made Eve with Adam in mind, so too did He create wives with husbands in mind. We are truly blessed that our God loves us so much, that we may experience just a tiny portion of that infinite, overwhelming love through the love of our wives.
Wives become our support. They lend a shoulder when we are weary, they lend a knee when we are weak, they lend an ear when we are anxious, and they give their heart always. Wives create our families. They become the mothers of our children. They take our house and make it a home. By simply existing, these special ladies make our world much more wonderful.
Husbands, love your wives. Study and admire her just as Adam did his wife. You will see all the things God created in her with you in mind.
