An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who causes shame is like rottenness in his bones (Proverbs 12:4, NKJV) The word “crown” does not really convey to us any clarity of understanding. The idea is this: she is the symbol of honor and glory to her husband because she carries herself exactly the way the Lord said a virtuous woman should. She is an excellent wife because her interests are: the Lord, her husband, her children, and then herself. Because these are in place – to her beauty one can’t compare. All too often, however, many of today’s women reject the Lord’s way and bring nothing but shame and sorrow to themselves. Being around an unfaithful wife brings rottenness to a man’s core.
