Biblical Qualifications for Future Husband

Hey Sparkles! Happy Wednesday! For today’s Wednesday Wisdom post, I am writing about the Biblical qualifications for a future husband. My LifeGroup class at my church has talked a lot about this lately, and I thought I would share it with my Sparkles.

  • The righteous hates falsehood, but the wicked brings shame and disgrace. Proverbs 13:5 – Honest
  • So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; Colossians 1:10 – Understanding (The need to “get you”)
  • When our enemies heard that it was known to us and that God had frustrated their plan, we all returned to the wall, each to his work. Nehemiah 4:15 – Security
  • That you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world. Philippians 2:15 – Blameless
  • For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Ephesians 5:23 – Authority
  • Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. Ephesians 5:25 – Nourish (This is different than just love because when you nourish someone you give something up.)
  • And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:2 – Devotion
  • And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. Genesis 2:25 – Sexuality
  • But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife. Mark 10:6-7 – Independence
  • The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. 1 Corinthians 7:3 – Affection
  • For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise, the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 1 Corinthians 7:4 – Loyalty
  • In the same way, husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. Ephesians 5:28 – Love
  • An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. Proverbs 31:10-11 – Self-love
  • Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:28 – Appreciation
  • And I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy. I will betroth you to me in faithfulness. And you shall know the Lord. Hosea 2:19-20 – Godliness
  • But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 – Spirituality
  • Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight. Proverbs 12:22 – Honesty
  • Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Colossians 3:13 – Forgiveness
  • The Lord ‘s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous. Proverbs 3:33 – Righteousness
  • You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s. Exodus 20:17 – Contentment
  • There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 1 John 4:18 – Courage
  • Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare. Proverbs 22:24-25 – Patience
  • Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 – Good Influence
  • Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat, for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them with rags. Proverbs 23:20-21 – Self-Control
  • You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:27-28 – Fidelity
  • Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm. Proverbs 13:20 – Wisdom
  • Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” Romans 12:19 – Love
  • Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 – True Love
