Diligence Praised

in the generous life

When your husband finishes something he has put a great deal of time or effort into, be sure to let him know that he did well.  Praise his diligence, hard work and dedication to finish what he started.  That said, don’t withhold your praise if you feel he has completed the job imperfectly or has taken too long to do it.  If someone finishes a marathon they are praised even if they did not win and even if their running form was poor.   In the same way, see dedication to finishing a task as praise worthy in and of itself.

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. Eccleciastes 9:10  NAS

Be generous!  Lori <><

Recently, our pastor recently disclosed that its a well kept secret that men are generally insecure. We like to think that they have it all together. They’re the MAN after all. We have learned through our marriage classes that admiration is near or at the top of the list of emotional needs of most men. Many times its higher than the need for…well you know… They need us as their wives to come along side them to bolster them up emotionally and let them know we’re on their side. One of the easiest and most effective way is with our words. So go to it, Ladies, use you words for good. Give your men the admiration that they need. Oh, and one last thing, admiration is a close cousin to gratitude so as we admire our men breathe out a prayer of thanksgiving for their presence in your life.
