Are you a husband needing encouragement and answers for your marriage? There is hope for your marriage and answers through God’s word! From time to time we are asked to give a list of scripture references that husbands and wives can be encouraged by and pray through on their marriage journey. With so many books and opinions on marriage in our culture today, many couples neglect to go back to the creator of all marriages and relationships for wisdom, advice and counsel. Here are a few that have helped us in our relationship:

  1. The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the LORD. (Proverbs 18:22)
  2. For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. (Ephesians 5:25-26)
  3. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. (Ephesians 5:28)
  4. Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly. (Colossians 3:19)
  5. So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself… (Ephesians 5:33)
  6. Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” (Genesis 2:18)
  7. Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
  8. This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. (Genesis 2:24)
  9. She is a loving deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts satisfy you always. May you always be captivated by her love. (Proverbs 5:19)
  10. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It 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. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
