Sandra first posted this on her blog in September of 2010. I remember reading it and feeling like the Lord had held my face in His hands, gotten my attention, and reminded me to make “doing my husband good” more of a priority in my days. Sandra has such a refreshing way of highlighting a simple, highly valuable truth, and presenting it in an undistracted way. It seems like Sandra can say in 200 words what usually takes me 400 to say! I so appreciate her heart for knowing the truth of God’s Word and for communicating it in an accurate, applicable manner. As a fellow pastor’s wife, she is an example to me of making each moment (and word) count.
Doing Our Husbands Good
Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
My husband, a pastor, has had a more stressful week than usual. Long counseling sessions, staff evaluations, a medical situation with his dad (who is over six hours away), big changes happening to our Sunday worship service schedule, volunteer recruiting… you know what kind of week I’m talking about. They happen in every profession.
So I tried extra hard to make home stress-less. Meals ready when he was ready to eat (even if that was 9:00 at night). Things picked up around the house. Laundry done and put away. Small things that I hoped would make our home peaceful and calm. It’s one of my favorite things about being a wife. Only I can minister to him in these important and practical ways. That’s why I believe Scripture says in Proverbs that a wife is a good thing in 18:22; and in Proverbs 31:12 it says about the excellent wife, “she does [her husband] good.”
How do you do your husband good? What practical ways do you show him love? How do you make your home less stressful? Let’s learn from each other today!
