Freshen Up Friday

Has your marriage reaped any of the fruit from your encouragement?  Keep at it!  You'll see it come in due time.

This Sunday when you head to church, give your pastor some verbal encouragement.  Tell him you're praying for him.  Tell him what you're asking God to do in his life.  Tell him you appreciate him!

Pastor's Encouragment:  Ask God to protect your pastor's marriage and keep it strong as a model of Christ's relationship with the Church.  Pray that your pastor will tenderly cherish and lead his wife, and that she will respect and encourage her husband, submitting to his leadership.  Eph. 5:23-33

Husband's Encouragement:  Tell your family why you love your husband.  Do you praise your husband to his relatives and yours? Does your husband’s mother know how much you love him? How about your dad? Perhaps you can drop a word of praise into a conversation or letter. Be creative in letting your relatives know that you respect your husband, love him, and support him—in spite of whatever flaws and weaknesses he may have.

Keep working at your marriage every single day!

See you in church!

Be refreshed,
