(Eph. 5:23) says “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.
Another trait of the husband who God has ordained to be the head is he must have the spirit of a mentor. Thus, he must be willing to counsel, guide and even teach his wife what it means to be Godly. But before he can teach her anything he must be teachable himself. He must be willing to submit himself to the leadership of another who can teach him. If we as husbands don’t have a teachable spirit we shouldn’t expect that our wives will have one when it comes to hearing from us. Mentoring is more than what we say though it’s often more about how we live. It’s more about what our wives see in our private lives that speaks the loudest. The mentor must be one who is an effective communicator, one who is transparent in the eyes of his spouse. Hence men, we must willing to talk to our wives and that’s often difficult for men.
The Lord was all about exemplifying the spirit of a mentor for he told King David in (Psalm 32:8 KJV) “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.” Thus, the mentor that’s evident in Christ desires to rest, rule and abide in every man in the person of the Holy Spirit. The mentor is desperately needed not only in marriages but in families and our communities as a whole. However, the mentor must start at home before it is displayed and received in the uttermost parts of the world. Let our wives be those who are first partakers of the mentor in us.
God Bless You
