Famous Christian Quotes About Husbands

Husbands, Do Not Scold Your Wives

A servant indeed one will be able, perhaps, to bind down by fear; but not even him, for he will soon start away and be gone. But the partner of one’s life, the mother of one’s children, the foundation of one’s every joy, one ought never to chain down by fear and menaces, but with love and good temper. For what sort of union is that where the wife trembles at her husband? And what sort of pleasure will the husband himself enjoy, if he dwells with his wife as with a slave, and not as with a free woman? Indeed, though you should suffer anything on her account, do not scold her; for neither did Christ do this.

John Chrysostom

Clement on the Role of Wives

With perfect propriety Scripture has said that woman is given by God as “a help” to man. It is evident then, in my opinion, that she will charge herself with remedying, by good sense and persuasion, each of the annoyances that originate with her husband in domestic economy. And if he does not yield, then she will endeavor, as far as possible for human nature, to lead a sinless life.

Clement of Alexandria

Obey the Husband as a Husband

When Paul commands wives to obey their husbands, they are required to obey them as husbands, not as masters, nor as kings.
