Day Six - 30-Day Husband Challenge
Day Six - "...whatever ye do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Cor. 10:31b
Do you recognize and appreciate your husband's creativity? Or do you criticize and demean his efforts?Instead of negativity, determine to be positive. Perhaps you can help your husband see that his efforts are an opportunity to glorify God.
Is your husband the "creative" type? Does he have any artistic gifts? What is that special "knack" he has? Affirm him for his handiwork - a hobby, music, gardening, tinkering with cars, working with wood, etc. Remember: Even if he doesn't measure up to your standards, praise his efforts. If your budget allows, buy him a book or magazine that will continue to encourage his special skill or talent.
If you have a hard time finding his "creative side," understand that men's creativity sometimes is related to their work. Find something he does to make his job run more smoothly or something he does that adds value to his work...and let him know that you have noticed.
Make his day...Praise his accomplishments in public, while he is listening. By Nancy Leigh DeMoss
Well, another hard challenge. I try to talk up my hubby - but when I do he is not around to hear! Sometimes it might get back to him of something I said - but it might not. This is going to be hard today to make sure he hears me say "He works on motorcycles really well. Ask him - he knows everything there is to know about motorcycles!"
What is your hubby good at?
