She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
I want to do my husband good and not evil all the days of my life! There have been times when I have sabotaged my efforts, however.
Do you ever feel the same? I think we all probably have areas that we can work on to become a more excellent wife. Plus, our husbands are all different. We need to learn all that we can about them to discover what will do them good.
My husband seems at his best when I am joyful. It definitely does him good!
I have been asking the Lord to help cultivate a joyful spirit within myself. One of the reasons I have done this is for my husband’s benefit.
I have realized that one my husband’s main objectives in life is to make me happy. He really gives it his all.
But when I let little silly things bother me that don’t even relate to him, my joy can seem elusive. Then he wonders what he has done wrong.
Friends, I don’t want this to be so!
To bring good to our husbands, we should be mindful of our actions.
Are we being content? Are we prone to grumble? Do we support his efforts rather than accuse him of being a failure?
These are all things areas we might need to take a closer look at while asking the Lord to help us conform to His image.
An excellent wife does her husband good by being a good steward of her time while he is at work, and by being content with what he provides. She knows that God will supply all of their needs.
An excellent wife doesn’t compare her husband’s income with others. This will bring our husbands so much good, and will remove stress from our homes.
Asking the Lord to work in our lives will help us so much, ladies. We can concentrate on growing the fruits of the Spirit in our lives instead of dwelling on the negatives we face each day. Goodness, would this bring our husbands good!
I think it is sobering that this verse talks about the frequency that we do our husbands good. We should be working on it each and every day of our lives. Being an excellent wife is definitely a full time job!
But we can take heart, knowing that the Lord is good, and will provide us with the tools to complete our task each step of the way. I consistently ask Him for more contentment, joy, and peace.
I hope that you are encouraged today in your role of wife. It is such a blessing to be helpers to our husbands, and I want to learn more about this honorable task each and every day.
