H. Holy in conduct

U. Understanding in relationship with his wife

S. Sound in judgment

B. Bold (not brash) and clear in communication

"Then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD" Josh 24:15. My wife and our children never wondered if we were going to church on Sunday or Wednesday. We all knew "He is Lord" and we serve Him. "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching" Heb. 10:25. It is just the sensible and scriptural thing to do.

A. Ability to provide for his own.

"But if anyone dows not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever" 1 Timothy 5:8. Of course there can be exceptions when a man has been injured or physically unable for some reason.
The man who squanders his money on drinks, drugs or debauchery of any kind ought to be terribly ashamed of himself. He promised God almighty to take care of her until death do us part. Now do it.

N. Noble in character.

"In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us" Titus 2:7,8.
With these characteristics, it is not hard for a family to follow this husband.

D. Dependable

"Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful" 1 Cor. 4:2. Men, you and I are stewards of our selves, our possessions and our families. Being the head of your wife and family not only gives you great privileges but great responsibilities. That dear wife God gave you had so much dependence in you to leave her father and mother and give herself, body and soul, to you. That precious child God gave you has such trust in you. "Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life." Rev. 2:10. Kind sir,that will be worth a jillion times more than the Heisman trophy or super bowl ring. You don't have to be a superman to gain this trophy, just a faithful man.

Prayer: Father, help us husbands to earn the love and respect of our own families above all else. In Jesus name. All because of Calvary, sumner
