When your husband finishes a project, be sure to praise his hard work and diligence. It’s a big deal to finish what you start.
That said, please 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 wasn’t the greatest.
See dedication to finishing a task as praiseworthy in and of itself.
… But the precious possession of a man is diligence. Proverbs 12:27b NAS
