Being a loving leader requires that we put our wives at the top of our priority list. Christ is our example. He loved the church and gave himself for it. The church is his priority. He shed his blood for the church. And now, as our ascended Savior, he prays for us. What a model! So, the husband who takes the bible seriously will make his wife his number one priority. Throughout the day he will ask himself the question: What can I do for her that will enhance her life? He will pray for her daily. He will encourage her worthy pursuits. He will commend her for her accomplishments. As Christ showers us with daily blessings, so the husband as loving leader will shower his wife with actions and words which say, “I love you”. And she? She will follow his leadership.
