Day Twenty-nine: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge

Filed under: 30 day husband/partner encouragement challenge — by my3boysandi @ 12:59 pm

“A prudent man foresees evil, and hides himself; the simple pass on, and are punished.”

Prov. 27:12

As you near the end of your Encouragement Challenge, take time to think about your husband’s responses to the wickedness of the culture, the media, etc. Does your husband recognize and avoid evil? Does he regularly turn his back on pornography, sexual temptations, and the urge to lie and cheat?

This is a valuable character trait. Like Joseph in the Old Testament, who fled from the wicked advances of Potiphar’s wife, this takes an understanding that these kinds of sins are first and foremost, sins against God (Gen. 39:9).

Praise your husband when he recognizes and turns his back on wickedness. If you can think of a circumstance where your husband stood for righteousness, remind him of that today-and express your gratitude.

Mr Wonderful often comments how bad New Zealand is becoming (for those who dont live here we are seeing more evil things happening in New Zealand but I still believe it is a far safer country than a lot are in the world). He is digusted in the evil things that are happening and sadden. He, himself lives a good honest life.

He doesnt like guns at all. He encourages the boys to play other games. We have began to use what I consider natural play and adapting it. For instance boys will boys and use their fingers or sticks as guns. However, we have said guns are not nice and play and pretend that their finger or stick is instead a hose and make the siren noise a fire engine does and a ‘swishing’ noise while moving our finger from side to side to pretend they are watering something usually one another or us and say “oh, now Im all wet.” Our Little man thinks this is very funny. He loves fire engines. In turn we are avoiding something that has the potential to be evil.

Mr Wonderful is not in the least bit interested in pornography. He thinks those that are are sick. Nor does he lie or cheat. He was brought up by good parents whom taught him that these things are wrong. Bless Mum and Dad W.

Thank you Mr Wonderful for the wonderful man you are. I love you.

  2. I don’t like the kids playing with guns either. But, I’m definitely against having a real gun for target practice. I see it as being just too dangerous. My brother-in-law died last year because of a gun and it affected the way that I feel about them.

  4. Excellent post, Jen and you are truly blessed. Things all around the world seem to be getting worse and worse. We just have to keep working on our corner and hoping there is enough people of the same mind set to keep things somewhat sane.

    Blessings.

  5. He really sounds like a wonderful person.

    The United States has totally forsaken God and is falling into such horrid, dispicable decay. Everything is tolerated. I fear for this country.

    Keep praying for NZ, you really don’t want what we have.
