Husbands Treat Your Wives As Thyself"

Updated on March 5, 2010

"Husbands Treat Your Wives As Thyself"

Whoso findeth a wife, findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.
Whoso findeth a wife, findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.

"Husbands love your wives as thyself"

 Epheshians chapter 5 - 23 : For the husband is the head of the household, even as Christ is the head of the chhurch: and he is the Saviour of the body.

Epeshians chapter 5 - 25 : Husband, lov e your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.

Ephesians 5 - 28 : So, ought man to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth   his wife loveth himself.

Ephesians chapter 5 -- 29 : For no man ever yet hated  his own flesh;nourish and cherisheth it, as the Lord the church.

A blessed model husband is one that live his life according to God's word and  love his wife as himself. If husbands love the wives as themselves that means , no harm will ever come to their wives, because the husband want intentionally cause pain or haarm to himself.  The husband is so important to God that he made him the head of the household, that why he put man over everything. God gave the husband the responsibility of treating his wife with love and respect, because that is how wives are suppose to be treated. But there many husbands that has failed the husband test of the bible; by treating their wives as an lesser equal and this not what God wanted to happen because he told the husband to love your wives as thyself.  This meaning to not misuse, abuse or hurt her, because he wouldn't inflict pain on his own body. I think the problem comes from the husband not realizing that once he marries his wives, he become one with her and neither one or the other is in a singular form anymore, because they are now on.

You have married your wife and she is every bit of you as she is of you, neither of you belongs to yourself anymore. This is where the trouble begin, the husband thinks of the wife as being apart form him, but he can't think that way; if he want to fulfill Gods law of marriage and his wife's dream at the same time.  If the husband love himself , he's only going to do good things toward himself, so that means he's going to treat his wife as the virtuous woman that she is,and love and respect her with all his heart, by doing so, he will be fulfilling the will of God according to his word.  I know there are husband out there that has hurt their wives and misused and abused them, but they have no knowledge of Gods word.  They couldn't 't know God, because people that know God, knows right from wrong and they live their lives accordingly.  Husbands It's important to God that you treat your wife with genuine love and respect because she doesn't deserve anything less. Husbands by doing this you're complying with God's rules and also making your wife happy and proud to be married to you.  Remember whoso findeth  a wife, findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.

      A man wouldn't mistreat himself, so why would he mistreat his wife? If more men truly applied this in their relationships, we wouldn't hear of so many affairs and physical, mental, and emotional abuse.
