Ladies, remember Delilah (Judges 16:5-22)
...There IS a little of Delilah in each and every one of us.
Delilah enticed Samson. Most likely with flattery and persuasion, definitely with persistence. Obviously she knew how to use her femininity to get what she wanted. Ladies, you too can use your feminine ways to entice and allure your husband, but have your motives be virtuous and pure. Unlike Delilah, your aspiration should be for the health and growth of your marriage. If you take care of your husband, the way God intended, he will desire to reciprocate and your cares and needs will ultimately be met by him.
Delilah sought to find the source of Samson's strength, so that he could be prevailed against. Don't seek out your husbands weaknesses and flaws, like Delilah did. Instead focus on his strong points. Rather than dwelling on imperfections, pray to God that his virtues become your focal point and delight. Remember we all fall short and need Christ's help and one another's exhortations. Be thankful and content with your lot in life, be happy and at peace. If you're not these things it brings your husband down also. Enjoy the husband God gave you and the life you have together. Seek security from God's word. Through Christ we will be provided with stability and peace, these cannot be gained from earthly things.
Though Delilah's motives were all wrong, since she used her femininity to gain fruitless security (i.e. money) at Samson's expense, even she knew how to get what she wanted from a man, and she was a heathen Philistine. We are supposed to be spirit-filled Christians, and yet often we are swayed by the worlds perspective that to be feminine, to use what God gave us, is negative and demeaning. Don't be governed by the world's influence. Use your femininity to please your husband. Use your femininity to build him up, instead of bringing him down. Use your femininity to encourage him and adore him. Use your femininity even to persuade and sway him. Then submit to his headship.
Ladies, remember Delilah...Do not seek to diminish your husbands strength.
