Day Fourteen: 30 day husband encouragement challenge

Filed under: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge — by my3boysandi @ 4:08 pm

“The righteous man walks in his integrity…” Prov. 20:7a

Every week there are news reports about men who gave in to temptations and

compromised what they said they believed. We hear countless reports about dishonest

business dealings, hidden infidelity, and hypocritical leaders. It’s so easy to focus on

these things and ignore those who are being honest, faithful and genuine. As you

continue in the “30-Day Encouragement Challenge,” determine to look for ways that

your husband stands against the culture.

Is your spouse a man of integrity?

Is he fair in his dealings with people?

Does he understand the meaning of justice?

Is he honest in business?

Unhypocritical in his faith?

Consider all the ways a man can live in integrity, and praise your husband for one of them.

As you have the opportunity – as it is appropriate – share examples of your husband’s

honesty and integrity with others.

Mr Wonderful is honest, reliable and fair and expects the same in return.

He likes to help others, especially sorting out their computer problems.

He is honest in his dealings with others.  I remember when he was wrongly accused a couple of years ago about something he didnt do.  Everyone who knew him knew he wouldnt hurt anyone.  They knew he wasnt capable of hurting anyone.  He is gentle and fair yet he doesnt like to put up with naughtiness.  His mother told me he had been raised to tell the truth no matter what. Shes done a good job of raising him.  One of the reasons he is fair and honest is because growing up with several disabilities he knew what it was like to bullied and he knows its not nice when people do that to you.

Like me if he is reliable.  If he says hes going to be somewhere.  Hell be there.  I remember when I first met him.  We met in Rotorua and I was there first.  My eldest son was with me.  My Home Schooler wondered whether he was going to show.  I said he would and sure enough he did.  A little late and full of apologies but there never the less.  He like me likes to leave with plenty of time to find a park and be on time.

He also fair to me.  If he knows Im stressing about something hell step in and try to help.  If he knows Im tried hell cook dinner.  Hes wonderful
