~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love to know exactly what is expected of me. In knowing the rules, I can better hold myself accountable. If I fail when I know the rules, then I know it was my own fault. I hope the next several weeks these basic help meet rules are just as beneficial to you as they are to me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:4 ~ “That they may teach the young women to be sober…”

To Be Sober : To do one’s duty, be moderate, self-controlled, thoughtful, and to learn to make wise decisions and judgments.

A sober wife is one who faces the fact that she is no longer a freewheeling individual, with time to do as she pleases. She knows that marriage is a joyous, but also a grave responsibility. She cannot be flighty and frivolous. She makes a commitment to be the best wife, mother, and manager of the home that anyone could be. She becomes the acting CEO of a great enterprise of which her husband is the owner.

Her most basic responsibility is to make her husband’s home run smoothly. She assumes the role of coordinator of all affairs. If the home doesn’t run in an orderly fashion, the marriage will not be joyous and fulfilling, and neither will child training.

When a woman soberly considers the needs, time schedule, and resources of her home, then she will be a more efficient help meet. <— Tweet!

Always keep in mind that your job is to do a good job serving him, so planning ahead is a must.

As wives, our life’s work should be to perfect how we may please our husbands. <– WOW! Share!

Your relationship with your husband is the single most important role you will ever play. If you fail here, then you have failed at your life’s work and have missed God’s perfect plan!

A wise woman doesn’t ever allow herself to be a liability, but strives to always be an asset to the marriage. She looks for ways to make, save, and use money wisely. Her husband knows he is a richer man because she is his wife.
