ADMONITION TO HUSBANDS AND WIFES

I Peter 3:1-9 NKJV
SUBMISSION TO HUSBANDS
1 Wives, likewise, be  submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives,
 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
 3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—
 4 rather let  it  be  the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands,
 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

A WORD TO THE HUSBANDS
 7 Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.

TO ALL
 8 Finally, all of  you  be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous;
 9 not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.

NOTE: I observed three key things from this admonitions

1. Some men do not honor the words of women, especially in some cultures. Even if your husband do not obey your words, you may win your husband through your conduct of submission and fear....(some men really love that. Its a secret) see verses 1, 2 & 6

2. When your adornments is not of the outward. If you make it of the heart with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and a quiet spirit, this is very precious before God.

3. Husbands, please humble yourself by dealing with your humble wives with understanding and honoring them SO THAT YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED
