Stanley was a successful businessman, he had never lost a deal, he had lots of professionals he worked with who always provided technical advice but that was not the reason why he never lost a deal.
Stanley's wife Rose was a college dropout but Stanley always discussed his business with her and asked for advice even though she did not have the experience or educational background. Stanley recognised that his wife had instinct and she could simply sense when something was wrong and 10 out of 10 times, she was usually right.
The bible says in Genesis 2:18 (NLT)
Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a #helper who is just right for him."
The word 'helper' or 'help meet' in Hebrew is 'Ezer' which means 'power' or 'strength'. So when the Lord God was saying He would create an helper for man, He was not talking about a helper like your house girl, He was talking about a superior being who would be with man to help him achieve his purpose.
The latest of anything is always an improved version and the woman was the improved version of the man. God made her everything the man was not. Unfortunately, it was not Adam who immediately realised how powerful the woman was, it was the devil and in the twinkle of an eye, he had used her to wreak havoc.
Ever since then, the devil's most powerful weapon has been the woman and God's most powerful weapons have been the Daughters of Zion. These are women who understand their role as wives, daughters and mothers who have used their influence with God to bless and protect their husbands, sons and fathers.
It is not easy for a superior to submit to the lesser, many men complain that their wives and girlfriends are not submissive. The only kind of man, a woman finds it easy to submit to is the man who is submitted to God. Mr Husband, Mr. Fiancee, are you submitted to God?
I once read about God made billionaire; John D. Rockefeller who was the richest man the world has ever known after King Solomon and he had this to say about his wife; "her judgement was always better than mine. Without her keen advice, I would be a poor man"
Don't look down on your wife even if she's an illiterate, don't think she doesn't know anything, by default, she is smarter than you. Though tender and easily swayed like a butterfly, a women could be like a flood or like fire that destroys everything on its part when hurt.
Make the conscious effort to discuss your business and plans with her, her advice and contributions will be priceless. God will also be pleased with you for realising the role of the woman He gave to you.
