Do You Have A Tarnished Crown?

A good wife is a crown to her husband...
Proverbs 12:4(a)


     This scripture verse ends with ..."but a shameful wife is like cancer."  The usual focus of this scripture when referenced is women.  In many sermons and articles this scripture is preached to speak to women about their role in marriage.  It IS important that this be done.  We DO need to understand that how we carry ourselves does not only affect us but it affects everyone in our families especially our husbands.  Our actions, the woman that we are, should not be such that it destroys others, especially our husbands, like a cancer eating away at a persons body.

     But I'm not going to be speaking to this today... instead I would like to focus on the beginning of this scripture...

... And I'd like to focus on husbands today.


What is a crown and what does crowning someone symbolize?

     A crown is a circular ornamental headdress worn as a symbol of authority.  It is usually made of or decorated with precious metals and jewels.  To crown someone is to bestow on them a title, power, authority, and a certain level of dignity, respect and honor.  Men, if you have found a wife then you know according to Proverbs 18:22 that you have found a good thing.  A good and Godly wife will bestow on her husband a title, power, authority and a certain level of dignity, respect and honor.  His title is Head of the Household and spiritual head of the family.  The power she gives him is the power to lead her.  She also gives him the authority to make decisions for her.  He can hold his head high in public because she gives him dignity, respect and honor.

     Women, all I will say to you is Are you truly being this kind of woman?  But as I said before.... I'd like to focus on husbands today.  So lets consider, Are you a Godly husband?  Do you "carry" your crown well or do you have a tarnished crown?
