The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her…She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:11-12
Abraham knew how important it was for his son to choose the right woman for his wife. He knew that she would influence him all the days of his life.
Woman, thou shall not make thy husband sin. Some women prevent their husbands from going to church. The man is the head, but the woman is surely the neck. Woman, you have a lot of influence. Use it wisely! Do not use your influence to make your husband stay away from God.
I remember a woman whose husband was willing to donate money to the church for some instruments. When the man raised up his hand during the fund-raising, the woman pulled it down. She stopped him from giving to the Lord. She came up later to lie to the pastors about how stingy her husband was. Woman, do not make your husband sin.
Even if your husband is not saved, you influence him spiritually. Perhaps you are married to an unbeliever; remember what the Scripture says in 1 Corinthians 7:14.
The Bible teaches that the believer sanctifies the unbeliever. Whatever that means, we know that the believing person has a spiritual influence on the unbeliever.
Abraham knew how important it was to have the right kind of wife. This is the reason why he went so far to get a wife for his son. READ: Genesis 24: 1-27, 58-67
