Husband Encouragement Challenge-Day 21


Day Twenty-one: "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." Matt. 6:33
If we are living in light of eternity, everything we think, do or say is seen from an eternal perspective. We will someday give an account for our failure to speak words of love and encouragement. Determine today that your words will be sweet and helpful.
Does your husband have an eternal perspective that allows him to reject materialism and temporal values? Express your gratefulness for his value system, and praise him for putting eternal things before riches and other things of this world. If this is a problem area for him, consider how you might alter your own value system and live for eternity in front of him, encouraging him to do the same. Only two things will go into eternity . . . the Word of God and people. Be sure that you are focusing on the right things.: I am very thankful that my husband is not overly concerned with materialism, and temporary values. He cares about people, not things. He is rich in love, and I am so blessed to be his wife.

I am greatly blessed by a husband who values time with his famly over extra work. We do not have some material things because of this attitude but we have treasures built up in heaven because of it. I will thank him today again for being such a wonderful husband and father. Thank you!

ps God showed me how I loved my hubby for WHAT He did rather than, WHO is was.

-Dishes, check (thank you)
-Make us leave 2 days late for family vacation because of work (not happy)
-help with kiddos (check)
-leave socks all over house (not happy)

Then, I started to see him like this:
He is a child of God - I dislike it so much when my kids fight - what's God think about that?
He is a mastpiece (because of Christ, not by his works!)

you get the picture?
Our marriage is AMAZING (most of the time) now! I think I will blog on this tonight.
