Day Eight:

How are you doing with the “30-Day Encouragement Challenge”? In case you’ve
forgotten, here’s the challenge:
* You can’t say anything negative about your husband …to your husband…or to anyone
else, about your husband.
* Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband…to your
husband…and to someone else, about your husband!

“…but who can find a faithful man?” Prov. 20:6b

Faithfulness is a wonderful but rare quality today, especially in regard to marriage. Do you understand how important this quality is? Your challenge is to continue to root out all negative speaking, and plant seeds of encouragement instead. You may be amazed at what will grow.

Contemporary culture often entices men to be unfaithful to their wedding vows and spiritual commitments. Appreciate your husband’s faithfulness – how he is loyal to you. Let him know that you are glad he has “stick-to-it-iveness” in your marriage. Appreciate his faithfulness to God. (If you have an unfaithful husband, this is a difficult area for you. Pray, speak the truth in love, remain faithful yourself, and discover ways to encourage
faithfulness in your mate. The Bible says that husbands may “…be won by the conduct of their wives” [1 Pet. 3:1]. You may also want to seek counsel from a mature, godly individual or couple.
