A prudent man forsees evil, and hides himself; the simple pass on, and are punished." Prov 27:12
As you near the end of your Encouragement Challenge, take the time to think about your husband's response to the wickedness of the culture,the media, etc. Does your husband recognize and avoid evil? Does he regularly turn his back on pornography, sexual temptations , and the urge to lie and cheat?
This is a vaulable character trait. Like Joesph in the Old Testament, who fled from the wicked advances of Potiphar's wife, this takes an understanding that these kinds of sins are first and foremost, sins against God. (Gen 39:9)
Praise your husband whenhe recognizes and turns his back on wickedness. If you can think of a circumstance where your husband stood for righteousness, remind him of that today and express your gratitude.
Prayer for the day:
Pray that your husband will surrender his time and talents to the Lord. Pray that his spiritual gifts will be manifested in his career, at church and in your home. (Eph. 5:15 -16; I Cor 12:4, 7)
