Husband Encouragement Challenge-Day 5



Day Five: "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers." Eph. 4:29
Another way to describe the positive side of this "30-Day Encouragement Challenge" is by using the word "edify," which means, "to build up." Negative comments only discourage and tear down. Positive comments encourage and build.
Do you edify your husband before others, adding to his value in their eyes? This is especially important to other family members.
Do you praise your husband to his relatives, and yours? Does your husband's mother know how much you love him? How about your dad? Perhaps you can drop a word of praise into a conversation or letter. Be creative in letting your relatives know that you respect your husband, love him, and support him - in spite of whatever flaws and weaknesses he may have. : I always edify Eddie to others, I want my family and his family, to know how much I love him. I am always thanking his parents for having such a wonderful son. Talking about Eddie is one of my favorite things to do.

This is a very good reminder! Just recently I was talking to my hubby's mom and told her how much I loved her son. :)

This is so important!
I thank God for my godly parents and that they still love Keith. I spoke so horribly about my husband in the early years.
Now they are his only Mom and Dad here on earth--I thank God for keeping their heart loving toward him.

This is a very good post. I practiced these things for as long as my Mother and Father in law lived. I love my husband and I want him above all to know it. Have a good day. connie from Texas
