This verse has meant much to me since 1948, when
Dr. D. A. Waite and I were married.
Along with other Scriptures, I have come to admire
Abrahamís wife. She was a woman who learned to call her
husband "Lord." This showed him the "respect" due to
his position as a husband. Doing this is not always
We also have observed that Sarah learned to be
happy in her tent. This, too, was something to be
learned. Thatís where she was when the angels came and
declared that she would be having a child in nine
months. Thought she laughed inwardly, she still showed
"respect," keeping behind her TENT DOOR listening.
So many women today do not believe that their
primary function, as a wife, is to be the "keeper" of
her home. It is her responsibility to guard that
house, not only against thieves and people who would
contaminate her children with worldliness, but also it
is her responsibility to keep sexually pure for her
husband and to protect him from women who would draw him
away from her. This being "a keeper of the house" is a
full time job! (ysw)
"STRENGTH AND HONOR ARE HER CLOTHING!"
As Christian women, we should strive
always to be what and where God wants us to be.
This takes care our attitude and
Why should it be difficult to find virtuous women
among us? (GGS)
And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And
he said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will
certainly return unto thee according to the time of
life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son.
And Sarah heard it in the tent door,
which was behind him.
