1. Love Your Husband
The first command that young women are supposed to obey is to love their husband. Your marriage is a testimony. Marriage is compared to Christ’s relationship to the church for a reason. People need to look at your marriage and be inspired to accept Christ.
2. Love Your Children
Notice the order here? Husband first, then your children. It’s almost easier to love your children sometimes! But give that power to your children and they will understand more than you know.
3. Be Self-Controlled
Loving your husband and children might seem disconnected from this, but I suggest to you that loving your husband and loving your children during the hard times IS being self-controlled. Remember the Biblical definition of love? (Found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7) I’ll quote it here: Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way, is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

4. Teach your children scripture every day!
God says in Deuteronomy 11:18-20: “You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul…teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,…”
5. Be Subject To Your Husband
Submission is certainly an uncomfortable topic for me. I kinda want to glide over it when I’m in the middle of my devotion. Not really something that I want to dwell on. (Because that’s my sin nature.) Marriage means submitting to EACH OTHER, but ultimately submitting to your husband.
