Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth- Colossians 3:2
Focus today on how you represent your husband indoor home, your church, and your community. In this challenge to encourage, ask yourself: If all my family and friends knew about my husband came from a filter of what I’ve said about him, what would they thing of my husband? Do you need to change the filter?
Do you talk positively about your husband to others… or do you complain and criticize? Your speech should reflect 1 Corinthians 13 love. Your words should be kind and should never “rejoice at wrongdoing” (v.6) Refrain from listing your husband’s faults to others. Satan likes to trick us in this area. Be wary of sharing barbed “prayer requests.”
Remember, “love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8). Present your husband before others today in a strong, positive manner. Slip in a good word for your spouse. Resist the urge to correct or belittle him in front of others. Somer of what you say may come back to him-and you want your words to be sweet- building him up and never tearing him down.
Don’t forget, you are always criticizing-or encouraging- before an audience. God hears your conversations when you are alone with your husband in your own home. May your speech be always seasoned with grace.
