DAY 5 CHALLENGE IS TWO-FOLD:
1. Each time the opportunity arises to say something negative about your husband to someone else — pause, pray, and ask God, to help you say something positive instead, or nothing at all. Ask Him for strength, to refrain from venting your anger, if that is what you normally do. Try to break the habit of dishonoring your husband to others, so that he will be well respected at the gate. Also ask God to help guard your thoughts, because the words of our lips, will flow from our hearts.
2. Each time the opportunity arises to criticize your husband to his face, ask God to help you think of something positive, or to simply bite your tongue. Even if he deserves the criticism, or a sarcastic response, it really only causes hurt, and conflict, to say it aloud. Sometimes, silence can be golden.
