"...let him labor, working with his hands is what is good..."Eph. 4:28
We are all accountable for the things we say, both negative and positive words. have you embraced the challege to speak only the positive things to your husband and to others about him? Here is a suggestion that touches the core of your husband's world.
Some women take their husband's career for granted, and they show it in many ways. Do you 'dump' on your husband at the end of the workday, or do you strenghten and encourage him with your words? A wise wife will make her husband feel that she values and appreciates his work. Let him know that you are glad he is a hard worker. Take oppurtunities to praise his diligence and resourcefulness to others.
If your husband is out of work, unable to work, or refuses to work, you'll need to learn to be more creative. Praise him for character quality that you see in him that would be a vital part in a sucessful career - such as persistence, decisiveness, strenght, an analytical mind, organizational skills, good with people, good listener, determination, etc.
Prayer for the day:
Pray that your husband will grow in leadership skills in your relationship - protecting and providing for you. Pray that he will lead you wisely and love you sacrificially, so that God will be glorified in your marriage. (Eph. 5:25, Col 3:19)
