Devotional Reading for the year
MY HUSBAND, MY CROWN 2
God is preparing your husband.
Only God is fully aware of the necessary ingredients needed to complete His plan.
Don’t tamper with His recipe.
Treat your husband with tender loving care.
Make full use of opportunities to truly be a helpmeet
Value his ideas and opinions.
You cannot totally ignore or ridicule his tastes and opinions.
Take into account your husband’s opinions when dressing, cooking, decorating, or making personal decisions.
Willingly and cheerfully submit to him in every way.
Be aware of his weaknesses and defeats. This will be easy if you dwell intentionally on his strengths.
If he occasionally becomes tired and irritable at home, try to meet his needs and calm his spirit. Saying “Dad is really in a bad mood. I wonder what his problem is?” to the children may cause him to lose the respect of his children. A much more appropriate response might be “Dad worked a very long day today. He must be really tired. Let’s leave him alone for awhile so he can rest.”
Be willing to “cover” for him when needed. You may find that he will do the same for you when you are feeling weary of your duties.
Never stop looking for opportunities to praise.
Whether you’ve been married for ten days, ten months, ten years, or ten decades. Why? Because praise is an expression of a heart that loves (I Corinthians 13:3-8)
