We can build our husbands up with our words or we can tear him down. The bible says the tongue is small, but it can spew forth deadly venom. And our words can come out in a split second without us thinking about it first. What that split second can do is leave your husband hurt for a longtime. Isn’t that pretty much true?
Negative words have a lasting effect and can stir up strife which can lead to a foothold by Satan in your marriage. Yes, he WOULD love that.
James 3:9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness.
Let this verse not be us. We cannot praise the Lord then say negative words to our husband who is made in his likeness.
My prayer for you today is to pray that your words are filled with grace and love. Speak life giving words of hope, love, grace, and faith to your husband.
In Jesus’s name. Amen.
