Does your wife think of herself lower than she really is? Do you find yourself trying to convince her she is beautiful? You may not be the only one, as this is more common than it seems.
What do our wives see?
Dove has made a pretty big splash on YouTube with a series of viral videos, which confirm this. Dove’s new ad campaign, “Dove Real Beauty Sketches” shows how women do not consider themselves beautiful. A study revealed that only 4% of women worldwide consider themselves beautiful. What about your wife? [Tweet this]
As a husband, that bothers me. One of the reasons I married my wife, is because I think her to be very beautiful. She is beautiful outside. She is beautiful inside. Her personality is beautiful. But does she think the same? I hope she does, but like the women in this video she may not.

What do you want your wife to see?
When we (husbands) decided to “put a ring on it”, we were called to make our wives beautiful. It is literally your job as a husband, to make your wife more beautiful. Wow! That sounds tough, but it is possible. The bible confirms this in Ephesians 5.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
She is more beautiful with you, than without you
Not only does the Bible confirm this. It provides the blueprint for doing so. Ephesians 5:25-33 tells us exactly how to reveal our wive’s real beauty.
- Love your wife, as Christ loved the church, and give yourself up for her (verse 25).
- Lead your wife spiritually, by reading the Bible to her, and with her (verse 26).
- Love your wife, as your own body, by feeding and caring for her (verse 28-29).
- Leave anything that prevents you from becoming one with your wife (verse 31).
Doing these things will uncover the real beauty inside and outside the person you married. You will be able to present her, to you (and everyone who notices), as a radiant woman. A woman whose stains and wrinkles have been washed clean.
Are you the man?
I don’t know about you, but I love that job!
That job is more rewarding and more fulfilling than any job I will ever have.
