One word

The best and simplest message I heard at a recent wedding was when the pastor gave one word to each the bride and the groom. 

Sitting in the pew I completely expected the words to be something like: Leader and Submission, but what I heard was surprisingly different. 

To the groom he said the one thing he could be to his wife was a:


Friend:  As women we must have someone to talk to.  When something happens we call our best friend to tell them.  I want my husband to be my best friend.  The best kind of husband and wife relationship is built on a firm friendship. 

To the bride he said the one thing she could be to her husband was a:


Cheerleader:  If a husband knows that his wife is his biggest fan, he can face anything thrown his way.  A wife’s role is to be a constant encourager, always giving life with her words. 

If you’re married: do you agree?  Would you say this is true in your relationship? 

If you’re unmarried: what ways can you begin cultivating these characteristics so that you will be a good husband or wife for your mate?
