We're told Samson, a man of great strength, was in love with Delilah. He told her the secret of his great strength...it was his hair, it had never been cut. And she told the Philistines (his enemies), and they cut his hair, and gouged out his eyes, and bound him with shackles, sending him to prison.
Samson loved Delilah. But she betrayed him by sharing his weaknesses. How about you? Are you sharing your husband's weaknesses? Oh, perhaps not with his enemies, but with your friends?
Proverbs 31:11 says, "The heart of her husband trusts in her." When we share our husband's weaknesses with others, we are in fact weakening him further. Keeping his weakness between you and your spouse will strengthen your marriage.
That isn't to say that as women we don't sometimes need a trusted girlfriend to share our issues with. That isn't what this post is about. But certainly you know who your trusted girlfriend is. It isn't the group of gals together at your ladies night out. It isn't even in your group Bible study. You can ask for prayer in a general manner without specifics. The Bible is clear that the Holy Spirit can intervene with others are praying for us, and don't need the details. As wives we must respect our husbands.
Finally, stay away from the proverbial scissors. We may not cut our husband's hair and take their strength - but we may cut them down, and in doing so steal their strength in our own eyes, and in theirs too.
Your husband, like you, is God's dearly beloved. Are you treating him as such? Don't be a Delilah.
