Segulah for Parnassah

The Gemara (Bava Metzia 59.) teaches that honoring one’s wife is also a segulah for parnassah. “Rava said to the people of Mechuza, ‘Honor your wives so you will become wealthy.'”

What is the association between honoring one’s wife and earning parnassah? We can explain as follows: Man was cursed that he must work very hard for his parnassah (Bereishis 3:19). The woman was cursed that her husband will rule over her (Bereishis 3:19). If he will be lenient with her curse, and not rule over her, then midah keneged midah (measure for measure), his curse will also be minimized, and he will earn his parnassah easily, without working hard for it.  ~  R’ Elimelech Biderman shlita
