"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers." Esp. 4:29
Another way to describe the positive side of this "30 Day Encouragement Challenge" is by using the word 'edify,' which means 'to build up.' Negative comments only discourage and tear down. Positive comments encourage and build up.
Do you edify your husband before others, adding tohis value in their eyes? This is especially important to other family members.
Do you praise yur husband to his relatives, and yours? Does your husband's mother know how much you love him? How about your dad? Perhaps you can drop a word of praise into a conversation or letter. Be creative in letting relatives know that you respect your husband, love him and support him - in spite of whatever flaws and weaknesses he may have.
Prayer for the day:
Pray that your husband will be faithful to his wedding vows. Pray that he will have a desire to culitvate your realtionship as a sign of his loyalty and commitment to you, and as a picture of Christ's love for the church. (Proverbs 20:6; Gen 2:24)
