Industrious and Innocent in character
F – Forgiving in conflict
E – Excellent in counsel and comfort.
If as a wife, this acronym does not tally with your character, you can never win your spouse.
Let analyse the acronym, one by one.
1. W – Wise in communication
Many wives have wrecked their homes and marriages due to poor communicating skill. As a wife, you need wisdom to communicate certain issues and ideas to your spouse. A great communicating skill will help you have great access to your husband and home at large.
2. I – Industrious and Innocent in Character
Secondly, if you want to win your husband to yourself, you must be Industrious i.e hardworking. You may be hardworking in the circular aspect, but you also need to bring it to family and marriage aspect. Try as much as possible you can to put the house in order and your marriage will be like heaven here on earth.
Also, as a wife, you must try as much as possible to be innocent in character. This means that your spouse should not have reason to suspect you, neither should he think that you are always keeping a secret from him. You must be plain in dealing with him.
3. F – Forgiving in Conflict
In every relationship, conflict is always part of the journey and it has an antidote which is forgiveness.
As a wife, forgiveness means letting go the pains you received when being hurt. It also means surrendering your right to hurt you back if you hurt me. One may be tempted not to forgive considering the gravity of the offense, but if you let it grow into full hatred, you are gradually losing your emotions towards the relationship and if not careful the relationship may be dissolved.
4. E – Excellent in counsel and comfort.
Lastly, as a wife you must be able to give great counsel to your husband and not evil one just as Jezebel in the Bible. With these, your marriage will have a smooth ride.
