Our husbands fit into four different categories as defined by Jesus. The best husband is the first husband that is described in the next two verses. A faithful and wise husband is the one that is devoted to his first family. The lord will make him ruler over all that he has not by force but because of the love that his wife and children have for him. This man is God’s servant to God’s family and his blessings will be many.
Jesus said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.” (Luke 12:42-44)
