Do You Please Your Husband At All Costs?
by Olawale Ogunsola
3/28/2015 / Womens Interest
"There is a difference between a wife and a virgin.
The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit.
But she who is married cares about the things of the world- how she may please her husband" 1 Corinthians 7:34.
The truth about every relationship is that you must sow what you want to reap. Every woman with a sound mind will appreciate a caring husband. Therefore, if you, as a woman, want to be cared for by your man, please, you must be caring too.
If your belief is that it is YOU only who must be cared for, your unknown name until now is "Love Exploiter".
This is recorded about a woman like you,
"Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubbies,
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life." Proverbs 31:10-12. Nkjv.
That is a woman who pleased her husband in her own time.
One thing to note about the husband of this woman is that it is not on record that he had any inordinate ambitions or that he was covetous. So he could be pleased without any wrongdoing.
This was the undoing of a queen and a king in ancient Israel. Their names were king Ahab and queen Jezebel.
Jezebel really loved her husband and would not hesitate to do anything to please him. However, this king over God's people was not satisfied with what he had. He was after the property of another man, Naboth, so he approached him,
"Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money." 1 Kings 21:2.
Naboth, however, refused to grant that request to preserve his "father's inheritance".
King Ahab went home disappointed; he could not think of the next line of action .
When Qeen Jezebel heard, because she hated to see her man wearing a sad countenance, so she encouraged him,
"You exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful, I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite." 1 Kings 21:7.
As an extremist who wanted to please her husband, she went to arrange how Naboth would be eliminated using her authority as a queen. The murder arrangement was effectively carried out because he was killed by the queen's agents.
Then the King took over the vineyard of the dead man.
What was the final judgment over the couple? Prophet Elijah revealed the heart of God thus,
"Have you murdered and taken possession?
Thus says the Lord: ' In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs shall lick your blood even yours.
The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.' " 1 Kings 21:19, 23. Nkjv.
That was the end of those couple. One could not help the other on the day of reckoning.
As much as you must be loving, caring and please your man, do not forget that you are responsible to a higher authority. There are so many ways to please your man without killing, wounding, stealing or doing any wrong; exploit them.
Do not heap up guilt and condemnation! You will give account of all your thoughts, words and deeds to your Maker, who alone can kill and make alive. Will you not fear Him? Care for your man in a way that you will not sin against God.
Stay blessed and rapturable ; the Lord is coming soon.
