Text: Proverbs 12:4; 1 Peter 3:1-6; 1 Timothy 2:11, 12

The life of a minister's wife is replete with several multi-faceted functions. She has great roles to play and carries tremendous responsibility in making her family a model, her church growing and reviving and the society feeling the impact of spiritual awakening. As godly, humble, wise and spirit filled woman, she is endowed with God- given intelligence that positions her as a winsome and influential figure in her family, the church and the society.

As a listening woman, she does not attempt to usurp the authority of her husband, but patiently learns from him and plays a supportive role that enhances the success of his ministry. She also listens attentively to the women under her leadership and provides godly counsels for their holistic well-being.

She is enterprising, industrious and full of godly wisdom and counsel (Judges 13:20-23). Her intecessory life is unyielding. She has a very strong listening ability and is endowed with great wisdom (James 1:19, 20).
