Like it or not the role of the man in a relationship is to be the leader. He needs to be a Godly husband who is able to lead his family in the way they should go. This is not an easy task for any husband to meet. The truth is this task is going to require a lot of spiritual strength that most men do not seem to have these days.
Have you ever wondered why:
- Women are the main ones taking their family to church
- Husbands tend to avoid responsibility in their family as the leader
- Boys are growing into abusive husbands
- Girls are acting without a sense of self respect
The sad truth is that there are not many Godly husbands out there. If you are married to one then tell him every day how great he is and how much better he is than other men. If you are one I salute you sir! Godly character is not something you simply have, it is something you live!
What it Means to be a Godly Man
The word Godly implies acting or being like God. Only a Christian man can be a godly husband for a few reasons. Reason number one is that you act like your father. If you are not a child of God you will do the devils works like it or not.
The second reason is that a Christian husband is going to get his advice from the bible. The advice you find there means he will love his wife and want to do good only to her all of his days. He does not beat her and does not try to correct her by being harsh. God said it was His goodness that leads us to repentance and that is how a man should be to a wild wife.
Being a Godly husband means you are going to act in a manner that shows real love. You will teach your children their value and the value of others. Your boy will grow to be prince charming who would never do harm to another except to save the weak. Your daughter will grow to be a modest woman who knows her beauty is on the inside and acts with respect to herself.
