How would you treat someone who was a powerful connection to your next big deal, your next step up the corporate ladder, your next business, your overall success, your greatness? No doubt you would do the very best it takes for that person.
Did you know that the most powerful connection to your greatness is not your boss, the board of directors, the shareholders or anyone else for that matter.
It is in fact your wife.
Treat your wife like she is the only person in the world who can help you become all God created you to be. He created you to be great, to subdue the earth as it says in Genesis 28:1 NIV, but together with your wife. She is your helper and your Heavenly Father has ordained her to help propel you to your greatest success.
Proverbs 18:22 NIV
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.
When your marriage is doing well, you will do well and the blessings from the Lord comes without great striving and sorrow so it’s the lasting kind you want.
Proverbs 10:22 NIV
The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.
When you treasure someone, you take meticulous care of them until they radiate such joy that brightens the world around them. Does your wife shine brightly like only you, her husband, can make her shine? Is her countenance lit up with the outpouring of your love and care on her regularly?
There is a certain joy on a wife’s countenance that is only as a result of being treasured by her husband. It will still be evident even if she is tired and weary from everyday chores in life.
Look her deep in the eyes and really “see” her. What do her eyes, her countenance say about your love and care for her to those around her? If it is dim or completely dull, there is something you can do about it today. Ask her how you can make her feel treasured again and then make every effort.
