Husband Encouragement Challenge: DAY 28

As Kevin's working nights this week, he's been really great about devoting his time home to his family. He hasn't spent any time on the computer really, and always asks what I want to do for the afternoon. Yesterday we took Eli to a little lake on base so he could splash in the water. It's just so fun to actually doing something as a family, instead of just sitting at home doing the usual.

And yesterday he was so kind to run out and pick up something I needed for dinner!

Just a few more days and we'll have Daddy home again! I feel like we only see him for a couple hours and then he's off again!

June 28--DAY 28

30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge
By Nancy Leigh DeMoss

"The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility." Prov. 15:33

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.

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 relationship.
