How to Become a Trustworthy Husband

Many claim to have unfailing love, but a faithful person who can find? Proverbs 20:6 NIV

Trust is the foundation for the emotional connection between you and your wife. As we have often discussed, safety, security and an emotional connection are the essential elements a woman needs to be satisfied in a relationship. Yet, the emotional connection seems to be the most difficult for a husband to attain. Without it, you are never going to have the intimate relationship that God intends you to have in your marriage. So how can you become the trustworthy husband to create that connection?

1. ) You earn your wife’s trust with consistency. In Luke 16:10, the Bible tells us, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” NIV. Think about some of the little things that would make your wife trust you. If she asked you to clean the dishes, would you grumble and moan, or would you say “sure honey, no problem”. If your wife feel safe asking you the little things, when it comes to sharing the more serious things on her heart, she will feel “safe”.

2. ) You earn your wife’s trust by being confident. How often has your wife shared something on her heart that you may have told your mom, dad or friends? And they may have told someone and it has gotten back to your wife?

A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret. Proverbs 11:13 NIV

“gos•sip
1. casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people.

This is one of those 5 nasty sins that kept the Israelites out of Canaan. If God thought it important enough to make the Jews wander around for 40 years, think of how it affects not only your wife, but you.

3. ) You can earn your wife’s trust by being close. That’s as simple as just spending some time together. Make her your first priority when you scheduling your life. We are always going to get caught up in day to day situations. Our lives have gotten crazy, but instead of taking a half hour to read facebook in the morning, sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee or breakfast with her. Don’t let the craziness of life take you away from what is important. Satan attacks relationships in the most subtle ways, creating distance and distraction is easy for him.
I can tell you from my research, that every woman is looking for trust and integrity. It’s a primary need for a woman. What can you do this week, to start fulfilling that need for your wife?
