Our husbands need us to encourage and lift them up. The last thing they need is a wife to come along side them and point out all their flaws! Chances are good they are well aware of their mistakes and even heavy-hearted about them.
As men, leaders, and providers they carry A LOT of responsibilities and burdens. As wives, we have a powerful influence in their lives. We can tear them down or we can build them up!
Let's submit our cares and concerns for our husband's weaknesses to God and trust Him with them.
We can be positively persuaded that God will keep that which we commit to Him! (2 Tim. 1:12)
And then, come along side them and encourage, edify, and build them up! Let the Holy Spirit do His work and let's do ours, okay?
ENCOURAGE . . . . EDIFY . . . .SUPPORT . . . . BUILD UP!!
Therefore encourage (admonish, exhort) one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another, just as you are doing.
. . . encourage the timid and fainthearted, help and give your support to the weak souls, [and] be very patient with everybody [always keeping your temper].
(1 Thess. 5:11,14)
Lord Jesus, give us divine wisdom on how to build up and encourage our husbands. By Your Holy Spirit, convict us of those times when we are trying to do Your work. Enable us to love and support instead of tear down. Make us like the wise woman who builds her home instead of tears it down.
