Day 516 ~ Pride vs. Humility (XXVIII)

"The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility." (Proverbs 15:33) 

You're moving toward the home stretch of your 30-day challenge! Just a reminder of what you've committed: 
  • 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!

Sometimes, when we just "know" we are right and our husbands are wrong, it takes great humility to honor them. It is difficult to speak well of our husbands when our own hearts are puffed up with pride.
As part of your Encouragement Challenge today, pray that you will respond to the Lord in faith and humility before you react to your husband. Speak wisely and well, and leave the results to God.
The humility that comes from a right relationship with God—the humility that comes when a man is willing to listen to God and be taught from His Word—is indeed a beautiful quality. Jesus was an example of this kind of humility when he was willing to submit to His Father's will (John 6:38Matt. 26:39).
Does your husband have that kind of humility? Is he willing to learn from and submit to direction from the Lord? Let your husband know how precious this is to your marriage relationship. 
Day 28! . . .
I'm going to keep this simple and not let it get too wordy.  

I can not tell you how many times I should have kept my thoughts to myself... right or wrong.

There is a lot to be said about humility.   Pride... all that has ever gotten me has been trouble.

What column do you find yourself?   Pride... or... Humility...

I am taken the road of humility... it offers more than the eye can see.

I am thankful for the friends who accept me as I am.

[here's to you finding your... ]


I am second..
