The Husband Challenge Day 28
The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility.
Sometimes, when we just "know" we are right and our husbands are wrong, it takes
great humility to honor them. It is difficult to speak well of our husbands when our own
hearts are puffed up with pride. Pick your battles...is it worth putting a dent in your marriage? Even if you are right..let it go..if it isn't important and later when your husband realizes that were right..He will take note. He might not tell you..but he will notice.
As part of your Encouragement Challenge today, pray that you will respond to the Lord
in faith and humility before you react to your husband. Speak wisely and well, and leave
the results to God.
The humility that comes from a right relationship with God—the humility that comes
when a man is willing to listen to God and be taught from His Word—is indeed a
beautiful quality. Jesus was an example of this kind of humility when he was willing to
submit to His Father's will (John 6:38; Matt. 26:39).
Does your husband have that kind of humility? Is he willing to learn from and submit to
direction from the Lord? Let your husband know how precious this is to your marriage
