A Virtuous Woman: Correction Please!

A virtuous woman is kind and good. She shows her husband love and respect through her words and actions. Proverbs 31 tells us that a virtuous woman has the law of kindness on her tongue and that she is good to her husband all the days of her life. How do you treat your husband?

Criticism can destroy a manís dignity. When a wife corrects her husband in public, he feels hurt, betrayed and even angry. He feels less of a man. It is important for a wife to show this simple form of respect for her husband. A virtuous woman, or godly wife, is good to her husband. I have known many women who make it a point to correct their husband in public, especially when he is telling a story. For the most part, the details are unimportant to the context of what is being said. If it does not matter, why bring him down by correcting him?

Allow your husband the freedom of telling a story, describing an event, or giving information without fearing criticism. For the benefit of your marriage, allow mistakes that matter little, and know that even you are not always perfect. How would you feel if every time you opened your mouth, your husband pointed out every wrong detail?
