Pastors' wives, love the women in the church well. You are the leading forefront for them, and the way you love them will teach them much about the Father's love for them. Each woman looks different, and so may the way you show them love. This is a huge responsibility, and it takes a dedicated, steadfast person to do the job. We can't do it alone, we need Christ in us to love people.
Women, including us have unrelenting flesh that can creep up in a second and hinder us from giving God's unconditional love. We have that "mama cub" spirit to protect ourselves and our family from those crazy women in the church no matter what it takes. Unfortunately, most of the time we don't tune in the "mama cub" spirit with the Holy Spirit. Women don't need us viewing them as the enemy. Women aren't the enemy, the devil is. He often knows how to ruffle our fleshy feathers against one another. Before you know it, the church has breed a bunch of quarreling women.
Love the church staff wives well. These ladies need to be on your team and "for you." You should also be "for them" and encourage each one of their gifts and water into their flourishing where they are at. Each one of you is in a different season in life and with Christ, and that is ok. You all need to flourish where you are, and love one another in it. Be the friend to them you have always wanted. There will be days you probably get on each others nerves, or days your flesh gets the best of you. But love through it. Apologize, and love more.
The enemy knows how valuable the staff wives are united. And the enemy knows how powerful a united church is to the kingdom of God. Love the women in the church well. God is love, and we all need Him. We have to lead and serve well that we may be salt and light to thirsty, dry people who come in. God has entrusted you to shepherd, lead, and love all who cross your path. Be dedicated and ever steadfast in Him.
