30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge - Day 11

Sorry this one is going up a little late for the East Coasters, but I've been so busy canning today and haven't had a chance to really sit down for anything.

Here's today's challenge:


Day Eleven:

"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord." Eph. 5:22

Women who are constantly negative toward their husbands—especially by speaking evil of them to others—show great disrespect. Determine not to do that today (or ever!). This challenge to encourage is closely connected to submission.

Men respond to women who respect them. What do you respect about your husband? Part of that respect includes submission to his authority. Let your husband know how respecting him makes it easier to submit to his leadership. Show your respect in public by listening to him and smiling at him when he speaks. Place your hand in his as you walk together.

If you feel there is nothing to respect, search harder . . . nearly every man has some core characteristic that can be nurtured and respected. In any case, you must still cultivate a submissive spirit to his position of leadership . . ."as to the Lord."


I have so much I respect in my husband.  He has many qualities that I love and admire, so this has always been an easy one for me :)

That's very wise, Sandra. I also have alot of respect for my hubby and that's not been hard for me because I'm glad to be under his leadership and protection!

Good for you on the canning! Hope you got it all accomplished!
