Last week I blogged on the subject of Earning Your husband's trust. Today I am continuing the 10 attributes of a proverbs 31 wife series with Proverbs 31:12: She does her husband good and not evil all the days of her life. It is very important that we have our husbands best interest at heart in our marriages. We could possibly come to a place where we are filled with hate or resentment towards our spouse. Then we will need to really take some time and talk to God, a pastor, or maybe a therapist. We want to prevent this from happening. Proverbs 12:7 says the wicked are overthrown and are no more but the house of the righteous will stand. Acting in evil ways will bring destruction to your home and possibly destroy your marriage.
We should not pay an offense for an offense. If you feel your husband has wronged you, talk to him about it. Doing something mean to him because he did it to you will put him on the defensive and won't have a good outcome. Talking to your husband and letting him know how you feel is a better option. Pray before hand and ask God to bless you with the words to say, the tone to have, and to bless his perception of what you express.
We should not say mean things about her husband behind their back or to their face. We should uplift our husbands so that they trust that we are their number one cheerleader. Many women speak negatively of their husbands and this is a sign of disrespect. Men above all things want to be respected. Ephesians 5:33 says however each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
How are you doing your husband good all of the days of his life?
Stay tuned for part four of 10 attributes of a proverbs 31 wife series!
