On today's post, I'm going to share a few truths on The Patient Woman in marriage.
Rebekah was a patient woman.
The marriage journey as we found in series one, is a long and an uncertain path.
Marriages are froth with mixed issues. There are homes where the husbands ignore the needs of their wives. In others, there are rumours or evidence of betrayal, illegitimate children, emotional and physical abuse, interference from others, lack of communication and so on.
Michal (King Saul’s daughter) was cursed by her husband. Do you know why? She mocked King David when he danced before the Lord without restraint. 2 Sam 6.
(iv) The woman in marriage is patient with her husband, her children and others because of her love, and she knows she is just as imperfect as they are.
(ix) Like God, her Father, she knows that sometimes human hearts are bent on evil, yet God’s mercies are new every morning. Ps 103:14. And love covers a multitude of sin.
On the other hand, the impatient woman pushes her husband to commit crime to gain wealth, connection or political power. She seeks vengeance, finds it hard to forgive because she is too impatient to wait for God to respond.
Again, the impatient woman is pushed to disloyalty with ease, finds it a challenge to fully submit to her husband and to remain virtuous in times of trials or hardship.
The impatient woman acts unwisely when she hurts her marriage or works against her husband because he refuses to do her bidding.
(x) The patient woman is an embodiment of the six other attributes discussed in the entire series.
