Day 24 ~30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives

"And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord." Eph 6:4


Children can be quite a challenge to the marriage relationship. A wise wife will support her husband's leadership in the home as much as possible and will praise him for his fathering skills. Negativity males a man fell like a failure, and may make him to want to give up.

Does your husband dicipline your children wisely? Doe she show them love and encourage them? Does he take an interest in their activities and dreams? Does he spend time with them? Does he take part in developing their characters? Praise him for these important skills.

If you don't have children- is yur husband positive and encouraging around other children? Let him know that you have noticied.

If your husband does not experience positive realtionships with children, you will need to figure out why. Perhaps he had  negative experiences as a child with his own parents, and needs to learn how to respond.  Plerhaps you can lovingly and patiently show him how to parent - while still maintaining authority in the home.


Prayer for the day:

Pray that your husband will have a balanced life - that he will balance work and play. Pray that he will fear God, but also gain favor with peopple he knows at work and church. ( Luke 2:52; Prov 13:15)
