A husband has so many responsibilities in his family, including providing, protecting, and supporting. But no responsibility is as important as being a spiritual leader for his family. A husband should be an example to his family of love and obedience to God, as well as gratitude for Christ and commitment to following His teachings. I made a list of these Bible verses for my husband, and they are revelations from God as to what He wants men to know.
