A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
As you go about your day, ask yourself the question, “am I bringing my husband good or harm?”
I had one of those light bulb moments when studying these verses a couple years ago. There are so many little decisions throughout the day where I have an opportunity to choose whether to bring him good or harm. Many of these little things seem so insignificant, but they really go a long way in cultivating an attitude of respect in our marriage.
When I’m shopping and I’m tempted to buy that extra little thing… is it for his good?
When I’m talking to my children about their father… is it for his good?
When I’m talking to my girlfriends about our husbands…. is it for his good?
When I drive his car and notice the fuel gauge is low… is it for his good?
Your husband may never see half of the things you do. But God sees. And your children see. And when your husband does see, he will see a wife who respects and honors him.
