Husbands

What are the basic biblical guidelines for husbands? A husband's primary responsibility is to love his wife. It's in the Bible, Ephesians 5:25, TLB. "And you husbands, show the same kind of love to your wives as Christ showed to the Church when He died for her."

Husbands should honor their wives. It's in the Bible, I Peter 3:7, TLB. "You husbands must be careful of your wives, being thoughtful of their needs and honoring them as the weaker sex. Remember that you and your wife are partners in receiving God's blessings, and if you don't treat her as you should, your prayers will not get ready answers."

Husbands should provide for their families. It's in the Bible, "And whoever does not provide for relatives, and especially for family members, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." 1 Timothy 5:8 (NRSV)

Husbands should not be dismayed because they are young.It's in the Bible, "Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12 (NRSV)
